I am 63. My friend is 75. I will call her DF. She is currently in a rehab center. I don’t know what’s wrong with her. She went into the hospital complaining that she could not breathe. She is out of shape and is depressed.
She has a 40-year-old daughter who is basically lazy. The daughter is married with one 12-year-old son. They live in A small apartment. So there is no room for the mother.
DF lives in a townhouse that she more or less owns.
She wants to move in with me. She says it is only temporary. My fear is that once she is in my house she will not leave. Originally she said it is because she is lonely at her house. And then she tries to claim that she needs help because she Cannot do things for herself.
I have known her for over 20 years. I have been good to her in the past with helping her out financially and occasionally calling her up and taking her out to dinner.
She is a sad soul, but she has a life that she created for herself.
Do I allow her to move in?
If she moved in Our next goal would be to get her into an affordable senior living apartment.
I don’t really see where this is my responsibility, it should be her daughters and her son who lives out of state.
I have not mentioned the situation to any of my family members. I’m sure they would tell me don’t do it.
I would appreciate any comments or input I could get from the people on this board. Thank you.
