Mom Living alone in North Branch, Minnesota?

Or, it could be anytown U.S. A.

This weekend would have been a great time to talk about this.

I know now my mom is alone we have talked about downsizing next yeat.

She says she has to go through a lot of stuff....Dad was  a bit of a pack rat.


Approach it gently.

If you tell Mom she HAS to move it will not happen.

Make is sound like her idea and you can call me tomorrow to help with the process.

Take it slow and easy, Bill. It is hard to change lively patterns and she probably wants it to be her idea.

I agree with Debbie Reynold's comment.  Life patterns can sometimes be difficult to change.

My mom is stubbornly holding to the idea of living alone too, I dont even try to change her mind, but she knows she has options if she ever changes her mind.
