New to Elder Care.
I posted several months ago about my mother in law moving in with us.
We brought her to our apartment after Christmas. I cannot say her move was totally agreed upon, but she really adjusting quite well. Each day she is here I feel like we made the right decision. She struggles with just about everything.
Bridget is about 83 years old, 20 years a widower. She has diabetes and loads of various aches and pains. And she has had a stroke and a heartattack- both mild.
Is it normal to take shower only once a week? I beg and plead but she hates doing it. She has a shower bench, and we help her in.
She sleeps as much as our dogs- if you don't have dogs, they are awake only 8 hours a day. Is this okay?
We are settling into a routine with her, and really at least for now it is not too hard. We decided to take one of her two cats. I think that made her feel happier- the other cat went to her daughter. So for now Goodnight.
