- am regular poster just name changed....
Mum is 70 and lives alone. Has done for a long time. She lives about an hour away from me. Im the only sibling able to be on call to help should anything happen.
I worry about this all the time. The loneliness and more importantly what happens if something goes wrong. She falls down her stairs or has an illness like a stroke and no one finds her for days.
She lives close to some of her family and she has a good group of friends and neighbours who might notice but i worry about this a lot (and feel guilty that I'm not there more)
am i alone in this worry? how do others handle this concern?
