My 88 year old mum is driving my sister and myself crazy. She lives in sheltered accommodation and has a lovely flat and two cats for company. Our problem she refuses any form of help. Her flat smells and is dirty. The cats dont use their cat tray properly and mum doesn't keep the flat clean let alone the bathroom. She doesn't regularly wash down work surfaces or change the dish cloths. She buys food and leaves it to fester in the fridge and eats out of date food.
She won't have anyone help with cleaning and she was getting her washing done but sacked the girl as mum didn't think she did a good job. She goes to the restaurant during the week but complains about the food quality. She won't even join in the residence activities. When we do see her it's a long list of complaints and grumbles. She also doesn't take her blood presssure and weak bladder medication regularly either. She does no exercise not even a walk in the gardens.
We have Powers of Attorney both financial and health car. She is a very wealthy lady but we are at our wits end as to how we convince her to have help to keep her well.
