My mom is 98 years old. She started going down about 2 years ago. Her living situation at her house (stairs, no bathroom downstairs, unable to fix her meals, clothe herself without assistance). I guess the short of it is she can no longer live alone.
There are 7 living children. she is currently with one brother and as been for about 2 months. He will not let anyone speak to her on the phone or wave from a distance for obvious reasons.
What can I do..I need to know that she is ok. Knowing that he is my brother does not make me feel like I should assume she's ok.
I want to request a welfare check, however, I understand I can't go or meet them there. I don't to scare her but I know she does not understand why she cannot speak to any of children. She is 98 but her mind is not gone.
What can I do?
