I canīt add anything to what has already been said. But it has been useful info for me.
My 82 year old Mom in Madrid starts living alone in a couple of months because her live-in daughter just got married. And another sister of mine just moved 600 plus km away to where I live. I have 5 siblings in Madrid but they are truly very busy, quite far too. They wonīt be able to take care of her in the proper way.
I live in the countryside and have offered Mom my flat -15 min away-which is very confy and close to everything she might need in a small town. She has 4 children here that can get to her quicker than me and the ones in Madrid.
She wouldnīt hear of any solution other than staying in her flat, even if it means living alone. She knows that all her children are going to be permanently worried.

Sounds like the perfect solution, Vicente!
