Moving Mom from Own Home

by Peggy

We will be talking to my mom today about selling her home and getting a new home with my sister.


She is 90. We want to get her situated before she declines any more. My sister and brother care for her now. We feel she should not live on her own. I live on the other coast.

Mom does not have any friends, has agoraphobia. Does not want strangers in her house. She has not said so but I think she is afraid and has had three panic attacks this year which included trips to the ER. She has Life Alert. We do not know how she will react. She is afraid of losing her independence.
If any one has some insight, I would appreciate it.
