Hello. I have a 74-year-old...
Hello. I have a 74-year-old mother who has been living in an independent senior community for over a year. Due to her imperfect memory, I have fashioned a small business card on a bracelet with some important info (my phone, her address...). She was this always. As of recently a woman claiming to be another resident of the community has been attempting to connect with me in efforts to a) get my mother Medicare, b) create a government issued ID or c) take her to doctor's appts. My mother already has an established physician whom she sees as often as any of the several family members in the area can help out.This is the most invasive and persistent disturbance of my and my mother's privacy since she moved into her current living situation. I have written her a letter, which the leasing office of her community was kind enough to deliver to her, as I am not privy to her exact address, nor do I wish to share any additional information of mine with this woman, who has also approached the leasing office asking for my mother's Social Security number, supposedly in hopes for gaining medical insurance and additional doctor support.At what point after communicating once, can or 'should' i take less civil action to prevent this woman from interfering further in my or my mother's life?I have contacted the leasing office; they have withheld my mom's information and alerted me of her attempts.
