My sister lives in Missoula, I live in DC. Our mother is basically healthy and drives but has some memory issues she is noting and needs assistnace in the winter to shovel snow and may like someone to shop for her groceries. she is not encumbered physically and generally is not forgetful but I think is afraid since she is alone alot - other than her bridge partners who are in their 90s, she is 84. She will not leave MT and does not need a nursing home, we are just too far to be home daily. She loves her home that was built for her and my Dad for this time of life but he passed unexpectedly due to an accident and also was quite healthy.
Sorry I was not clear! Mom lives in Helena and my sister lives in Missoula- it is not always possible for my sister to get to Helena.
