I am so sorry to hear that pdoc, is it west country your mum lives? I seem to remember you mentioning it before
It is very difficult looking after parents when they get old, just think what they must have gone through when we were teenagers!.
I feel that if we do all we can, and suggest all that will help them, then we cant do anymore, and we then will have nothing to feel guilty about.
They do like to hold onto their independance for as long as possible, my parents are 86 and 90 and have just now given in to me doing almost everything for them and mum said today, ythat she is pleased and is enjoying my help.
