It’s important to run the air conditioner to keep mold and mildew from developing inside of the house
I stopped at my mom’s place on my way home from work last week. I didn’t call and give her a heads up. I wanted the stop to be a surprise. The last few times I’ve gone to my mom’s house, I’ve been concerned about her health and the condition of the house. I’m not sure if my mom is actually taking care of herself. When I stopped last week, the house was a mess. My mom was laying in bed in her pajamas and she had a bag of chips on the bed. I honestly don’t think she ate anything that day except snack food. I got my mom dressed and made some food in the kitchen. I tried to clean up the house while my mom was eating, but she got angry and told me to leave it alone. It was very warm and humid in the house, so I decided to check on the indoor temperature. I looked at the thermostat and I was surprised that it was off. I asked my mom why she had the air conditioner off when it was so warm in the house. She told me that it cost a lot of money to use the air conditioner and she wasn’t going to pay the high bills anymore. It’s clear to me that my mom is getting too old to live alone. It’s important to run the air conditioner to keep mold and mildew from developing inside of the house. My mom knows it is important and she still doesn’t want that air conditioner on. That is one big sign to me that it is time to think about my mother’s needs.
