So far Mum is managing to live on her own, with someone coming in once a week to clean and us coming over once a fortnight (about to increase to once a week) to take her out to lunch, do the shopping and whatever else is needed. She has the red emergency button, a local 'ready call' service who can do odd bits of shopping, the neighbours, and we order ready meals for her so she can have a reasonable diet. My husband rings every day primarily to see if she's taken her tablets (this isn't dementia medication, as she hasn't been prescribed any, but for her heart etc). This often means 2, 3 or 4 call backs because she says yes and then forgets. We went over today and there were two full batches of tablets on her side table, so that's two days she's missed, despite telling him each day she's taken them (once she takes them out of the mediwallet she forgets all about them and thinks she must have had them). We've been racking our brains to think of any better way of managing this situation - it's probably our biggest worry at present, but short of someone going in each day and standing over her while she takes them, we are short on ideas! Anyone dealt with this situation and found something that works? We just want to enable her to stay in her own home as long as it is safe for her to do so, which is what she wants, and in other respects it's currently manageable... Any ideas very welcome, thanks!!
