Pdoc ((hugs)) it's tough isn't it? She's your mum and mum's usually know their sons very well - she'll know it's because you care so much.
Parents fight against what they see as 'giving up'. If there's a way to show her that more help would actually make her more independent rather than less that would be good, but I know it's easier said than done.
Is there anyone she listens to? Maybe not a family member, but a friend or professional?
Ma eventually listened to her GP's Practice Nurse because 'she knows about these things' whereas I, her daughter with many years experience in social work, 'knew nothing about it' .............. of course
