Sorry for the off topic subject but I think this is the best site for this question.

We are aware of an older lady whose son lives with her. The lady is approaching the time when mobility and good decision making will not be possible.
The son is prepared to go ahead with needed home improvements, cleaning up, etc, but the mom will not help in terms of decision making and disposing of personal but useless items. She resists any effort that appears to her to be a loss of individuality or independent action.

I think this is a common situation and I hope those who have faced this can offer some advice or point to a website that may provide information on how to handle things. (Direct action and/or TLC?).
There are obvious actions that one can use but it is preferred that all sources of info/advice be utilized if available.
Appreciate any help.
Thanks,
H.
