Advice? Future MIL may be moving in with us.
We just signed the contract for the sale of our apartment in order to move into a bigger one so my fiance's 83 year mom can live with us. I think her greatest troubles come from her isolation and bordom. She is diabetic and has had a heartattack and a very mild stroke. She doesn't really havr the where with all to take care of herself and she is housebound. We feel that our attention and a very accessable neighborhood will promote better health both physically and mentally.
She agreed to our plan, but is now beginning to put the brakes on the whole thing. She is quite and unintrusive. I know she is fond of me. I think that we will be able to live well together. We just need to get past this hurdle of moving her out of her home on LI into an apartment in Manhattan.
I think that it is great that a place exists where I can talk about this. No one I know is in this position.
