since he had a heart attack 4 yrs ago. My mother is healthy for her age but has a bad knee. She has been diagnosed with neuropathy. She takes too many pain pills. My step father is weak because he stays in the bed all the time which makes my mom run like crazy to do the simple things for him that he can really do himself. I am super worried about my mom. She passes out and usually ends up in the hospital. She's getting a little forgetful but not real bad. I don't like them being alone. I live in florida and offered to move up there to help with daily chores. Yes I want to move in with them to be around my mom 24/7. Step father says it will do more harm than good. my mom wants the help. I don't know what to do. She tells me she's ready to die and at this point in her life I don't think that should be an option! I feel my step father is running her ragged . He's like a father to me and we get along. So that is not an issue. She's only 4'9 and 120 pounds. Bottom line is, her kids want to help her even relocate to do so and he says no. Don't know what to do. Any comments or suggestions would be grateful.
