My Mum is fiercely independent and wants to continue that way.
She has problems negotiating the modern consumer ways: buying stuff over the phone she doesnt need, on a charities marketing list and basically, seems to get talked into buying stuff she doesnt need or want. She then looses track of what she has brought and signed up to. I turned up to find a stack of dried food deliveries (graze) piling up in the corner - which was surreal.
I dont want to interfere with her life. I do want her to be protected but I cant seem to make her understand that there are people who sell stuff using all sorts of tactics.
How can I help? How can I help her understand there are unscrupulous businesses who want to take advantage?
Ideally, how can I get her to put the phone down immediately if she doesnt recognise the caller?
Thanks for your advice.
