Aging Itself Shouldn't Mean Loss of Rights

Dear Carol: My 76-year-old mother lives alone in the family home and she doesn’t want to move. There’s no family in her community anymore though she has good friends as well as her church where she’s very active. She says she feels her age some but is generally happy and she loves her garden. I’d like mom to move from Minnesota to Texas where I live so that I can take care of her. Not only won’t she move to Texas, she won’t even sell her home and move to an apartment in her community. Granted, she’s in very good health for her age, but she has had one bad fall and I worry about her. How can I persuade her to move? Ginny
