I see the following scenario (or versions of it) quite a bit in my law practice. It goes something like this:
Son: What – are you blind? Can’t you see that mom needs to go into a nursing home?
Daughter: No she doesn’t! All she needs is some help. She’s fine staying in her home.
Son: She can’t even take care of herself or go to the bathroom without someone standing right over her. Come on, get with the program.
Daughter: We can get an aide to come in and help and we can take turns with grocery shopping and laundry and whatever else needs to get done.
