My 89 year old mother lives alone - has extremely poor vision and hearing impaired. She absolutely insists on her independence.. grocery shopping, appointments, etc
Over the last week, she has been hinting (she will never be upfront and just ask) about going out for dinner, getting a burger delivered even though we just brought her to our house for dinner a few days ago... I went over to her house today when I knew she would be out (sadly) to snoop- I know what that sounds like .... and found no meat , 2 bags of rotten mushy carrots and only a loaf of bread in her freezer... she does have eggs, milk.. she is out at bingo
I have had the retirement home talk and then been given the silent treatment for a week, I have offered to set up a weekly grocery run with her (I work FT) but she likes to go when it suits her and not me... ie. weekends- I work every other weekend.
Delivery grocery services are " too much", she wants to pick out her own things, meal delivery services have been tried and given the boot too.
She has all her faculties.. and will not admit she is in need of help... I am at my wits end.
