Mum resists all suggestions of things that would help her. She fought me for 2 d*mn years over hearing aids and getting her to use a walking stick. She's no major health problems but she resists things that would assist her in staying independent.
I want to get her a walking frame, for when she has "wobbly" days. She refuses, says she's not ready for that. Next time we have a trip out, she wants put in a wheelchair. She weighs about 17 stone so there's no danger I can push that about.....
Just one example.
Any techniques to get her to help herself? I'm guessing the best one would be to be unavailable, but she's an excellent manipulator and I fall for it every single time.
