My 84 yr old Mum goes to a day centre once a week. She loves it people to talk to and places to go. Also very good meals.
Mum is slowly loosing weight she doesn't need to but she can't be bothered cooking for herself any more.
At the moment she is just above 7 stone.
She told me yesterday she was so full.
I asked how
We all went to a Hotel in the Adelaide hills and I had Fish and chips then Pavlova
I burst out laughing, she told me she cleaned up the plate.
So I said a big get fat day Mum
She proudly said yes.
My sister and I are becoming concerned about her as she is not eating enough.
So whether Mum likes it or not a few changes are going to be made .
As Mum wants to stay in her home as long as possible, she will have to have a cleaner, meals delivered and a carer .
I have been an absolute nag lately for she needs regular Dr appointments for her blood pills. She makes millions of red blood cells, more than normal; these than clot her blood
She is letting all that go but still maintains her garden as the Botanic gardens
The joys as we age
