My mom has been living alone for a long time, and my dad passed away 6 years ago.
My sister plus I were truly sad about my mom staying lake house by herself, although she wasn’t going to leave the lake house unless she did not have any choice.
In March of this year, she didn’t have any choice. She fell plus broke her hip. She could not return to her home, so she is now living here with my wife plus I. Every one of us had to make some swings around the lake house in order to make room for my wife’s mother. Since she broke her hip, she needs a lot of assistive devices in the lavatory plus the home office. She has a lot of trouble getting around without help. My mom complains about the temperature in the home office too. The home office where she is staying is on the other side of the house. Every one of us had to make room for my mom plus she had to be in a arena where she did not have to be distraught with any steps. That part of the lake house is naturally warmer plus my mom constantly complains about the indoor rapidly increasing temperatures, however last night she was talking to my wife about buying a portable a/c for the house. I do not guess the people I was with and I need a portable a/c, but I am not going to say no if my mom wants to buy 1 to put in her home office. It’s going to raise the electric bill quite a bit, however I would rather pay the bill then listen to the complaints.
