Last summer, Mrs. Trost’s husband had a stroke and died, but she wanted to stay in the house, in Mankato, where she had lived for 36 years. She did not want a live-in helper, and she cannot drive. At 88, Mrs. Trost has macular degeneration and takes medications for seizures, memory loss and restless leg syndrome.
“She’s a feisty gal,” Mrs. Pitet said of her mother. “She is fine when she takes her medicines, but, even so, I was terrified of leaving her alone.”
