Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
What do you do when Parents can no longer take care of themselves?
My mother is in her early sixties and is otherwise of able mind and body, but to put it simply, she really sucks at keeping herself and her living arrangement in good working order, such that I'm mostly amazed she survives. She's gainfully employed (although unlikely to be able to retire, ever), but the regular chores of daily life are almost too much for her. This isn't the result of any actual medical problem (except perhaps psychiatric) but she just can't make herself do the basic things that you need to survive, like cleaning her house, fixing her broken air conditioning in the Georgia heat, or getting her car fixed so she can go to the store at reasonable hours.
For reference this is a picture of her dining room: (Spoilered for H-scroll DESTRUCTION)
Here's the dining room from the living room:
FINALLY! A H/A thread where you can use "Your mom is so dirty..." in an on-topic response!
Every room in the house (as well as the driveway) is basically like this, but you get the idea.
So tell me H/A, as my mother ages is there anything I can do to end her hoarding ways and get her to take care of herself? Should I do anything?
