This is such a tough and sad situation, you don’t want to take your Mother’s dignity and independence away, yet you know something awful will happen if you let her have it her way, if she or you are able to pay for care in her own home to pop in once or twice a day that would be ideal for the time being. Have you actually sat her down and gently told her how you feel and you are so scared for her well being and it’s you who wants her to be safe. I know it can be so easy to turn into a shouting match with one storming off in fury. You can talk to professionals who deal with this sort of thing every day and they can give you help on how to get her to listen or they can go and see her and lay it out on the table.

At the end of the day, would she rather be safe in a place where she has 24-hour care, or would she rather live at home alone then have an accident and end up in hospital which we all know is far too packed and busy to have the care the elderly need. So ling as you find a good home for her to be they do massage, they do their nails, they’re bathed. I have seen a couple of really nice hones for the elderly with lovely caring people. But also, there are hideous ones, just do your research and visit as many as you can and maybe take her to meet some of the other elderly people there so she can get used to how life would be.
