What you have suggested does not seem very collaborative, and it seems intrusive. You should instead be a good friend to them and if the subject of their own place comes up, ask if you can help in any way. Are you geographically distant? I could not understand why you would send them a message, inst...

You are too funny!

On top of Old Smoky,
All covered in snow,
I lost my true lover
By courting too slow.

From a New York Times weekend briefing in my email: U.S. combat troops are out of Afghanistan. But the White House is trying to convince Afghans that the U.S. is not abandoning the country. The military will help Afghan forces by teleconference. Gotta love that Zoom! Husband and I about died laughin...

It never fails to amaze me how much attention someone gets by complaining of their lack of a partner, then disputing every piece of advice or supportive comment someone offers. You will never get a partner because you are a miserable, complaining old cuss. Not because you're too old. Not because you...

He used to do the litter box chore but is forgetting it or doing it wrong, so I have to take that over too. One thing that makes a difference is using a long-handled scooper...

I think some of the terms in your post are deliberately left vague (terms your mother used, I mean) such as "in care." It is not usual that an autistic person living with parents is in care of social services (in the US), although the autistic person may be receiving some government income...
