Jean is a fiercely independent woman. Even though she recently celebrated her 86th birthday she insists that she's perfectly capable of taking care of herself and her home. That's not what her family thinks.
When Jean's husband died three years ago, she made it clear that she wanted to continue living in her own home. Her children, who all have families and full-time jobs, stepped up to the plate and supported her as much as possible. About a year ago they began to notice some worrisome signs — meals uneaten, bills not paid, and their usually immaculate mother in dirty clothes, her hair not combed.
Jean's family came up with a plan. Those who lived nearby would take turns spending the night and preparing meals. One would pay her bills; another would do the grocery shopping.
