When a parent doesn't want help... but really needs it
My husband's mother is barely able to stand, but she doesn't want to move out of her house or get help. She sometimes likes a person we hire to help her, but then finds some reason not to like them anymore and doesn't want to see them again. She has balance issues, and we're all afraid we'll find her on the floor some day with a broken bone, just waiting for death but not having called anyone for help. Has anyone dealt with this, and how do you manage to have a frank conversation about when it's time not to live alone anymore?
