My husband and I are going to take a 3-4 day vacation. My mother is in pretty good health but her memory isn't great. She can basically take care of herself. Also, she lived along and did fine until just a few weeks ago when she came to live with us.
But I'm kind of worried about her. I'm going to ask her doctor for an opinion whether I should possibly find someone to stay for a few days or not. Partly, I wonder if I'm worrying too much. Partly, I'm not trying to treat her like a child, and I kind of think she'll resent it if I try to get someone in. She's too sharp for me to pretend it's anything besides what it is -- a senior sitter.
Any words of advice on this from others caring for someone with mild memory loss and mild health issues?
