Mom's Pneumonia

Any advice on how to make my 58 yr old mother take better care of herself- she frequently gets pneumonia and yet refuses to do what she needs to do to get well.

If your mother is frequently getting pneumonia and not taking care of herself there may be more going on then just illness. Have her primary physician give her a through exam immediately, and she may also need a nutritionist to advise her on dietary supplements.  There may also be psychological problems such as loneliness or depression.  Human behavior is very complex and rarely are there simple and straightforward answers.
