I went to visit my mom during the past year, in addition to I could not actually believe how cold it was.
She lived less than a mile from me in addition to she didn’t tell me her gas heating machine was broken.
I asked her when the gas furnace had gone out in addition to she shrugged. She said it was a couple of days, or even a week, but she had plenty of jackets to keep her warm. It wasn’t yet cold enough to cause pipes to freeze, but it was frosty enough to cause hypothermia if she wasn’t warm enough. Mom was in her late seventies in addition to had dementia problems. I knew she would soon need supervision, even though I didn’t realize it was so soon. I called the Heating in addition to Air Conditioning company to have the gas heating machine repaired, in addition to then we called my fiance. I told her what was happening in addition to asked if mom had said something to her about the gas heating machine. When she said she had been there a couple of days earlier, in addition to the gas furnace having no issues, I relaxed a little. Then we talked about moving her into our residence, but mom said no. She didn’t want to leave her residence regardless of what I said. I asked if she would have a live-in companion. Her response was that they could not touch the thermostat or come into her room. I took that as a solid yes. By the following Monday, I had her gas heating machine repaired in addition to there was a local lady who lived alone, in addition to she will transfer in with mom in addition to keep her company during this time. It surprised me how well they got along, in addition to whenever there was a drawback with the heating, I got a phone call from mom’s companion.
