Hello,
I'm in my 70's, I've been a widow for over 10 years. I live with my son who is 43 and suffers from mental illness. Recently my health has been in decline and getting around is problematic for me, but not impossible. I struggle with the day to day stuff and the emotional roller coaster of my son's emotions. I'm just looking for some support and other people who are maybe in a similar situation.

You can find equal footing with your son on a problem both of you face, that as long as you are together and do an activity that both of you actually want to do and agree on, it helps. Then for another issue that's ailing for health maybe another person who has a similar issue and also needs your insight (halfway solving the problem for them) you can try and locate too

people always have meals together as a group activity which is common. Actually there are plenty of activities too, maybe taking flattering and creative pictures or something, ones that are self-expressive, or filming a video or something
