My mom lives alone at 95 in a 2-story. Of course the range of needs is increasing, toenails way overgrown, needs help bathing I’m sure. We are calling and checking to see if she’s eating- she says she can’t remember. Sister brings groceries and I visit a few times a week with food, but that’s distanced and masked. She’s always refused living in with anyone or allowing any help. She has a medical alert system, sometimes she wears it. Has always been an extremely private and proud person, but very nice.
My sister and I are frustrated with her declining all our efforts. We are watching her just wear away. She has a bad memory but not dementia. “Just say no” is her motto.
Thanks for listening.
