My mum has been living with Parkinson’s for nearly 20 years and in my opinion is approaching the advanced symptoms.
She has recently had a fall which has put her in hospital for the last few weeks. One of the worrying things with this fall is that she couldn’t get herself up again. She has always managed this previously.
My brother and I are discussing what we need to do next and are disagreeing on the best course. I believe that mum would be best to move to sheltered accommodation and have a carer where the experts can look after her medical needs and we can focus on being a family.
My brother is talking about mum moving in with him. He has 3 children and a dog in a 3 bed house and would need a garage conversion to make this possible. His partner, who doesn’t live there also has 3 children plus he works full time. In my mind this is not suitable accommodation with someone with advanced Parkinson’s.
What do you all think?
