She is a healthy 90 year old living independently in a nice bungalow surrounded by friends.
However, she is carrying on as ‘normal’, using the bus for trips to the local city to mooch round the shops and going out with her friends for car trips to garden centres and suchlike. All this would be great of course if it weren’t for the virus - I know she’s an adult and quite capable of making her own decisions. I am in my late 60’s and being more cautious than her, happy to go to the supermarket and for walks, visiting children and grandchildren whilst strictly following the guidelines/rules.
Ive been visitIng her a couple of times a week during the past 6 months (except when we were in lockdown) and phone every day but I am now worried that she is a risk to me (and through me to my children/grandchildren) She won’t meet me outdoors as she feels the cold too much to sit for long in the garden.
Am I being silly? She knows and understands the rules but she is lax with mask wearing and seems to only follow them if it suits her! I love her dearly and have tried talking to her about this, but she thinks she is doing nothing wrong and won’t be budged. I’m reluctant to push too strongly as I know she would be terribly unhappy not to get out of the house but can’t help worrying not only about her but for myself and my family too.
