About this Care Recipient

My mother is 87 and has mild dementia and short-term memory problems, and is starting to forget her medications. She wants to be independent as long as possible. She is very independent-minded and strong-willed, but usually easy to get along with. She has lived alone for almost 30 years since my father died, but is getting to the point where she needs a little more help with daily tasks. She has some problems communicating with people because of her mild cognitive and memory issues, and gets embarrassed about her growing limitations. She voluntarily stopped driving a few years ago, and has gradually stopped going out for walks because of physical weakness. Her physical health is generally good and maintained well with a few daily medications for blood pressure, a thyroid condition, and high cholesterol. She can walk fairly well but is getting gradually slower, weaker and less steady. So far she hasn't been prone to falling.
