I'm worried about my lazy ex-partner

For five years I lived with an incredibly lazy man.
He expected me to do everything around the house, even manage all the finances, and although I loved him, it was too much and we split up.
We’re still friends, and now he’s living with a much older woman who does everything for him.
He doesn’t have a job and I’m worried that he’s going to wreck his life as he seems content to just be a slob.
But what can I do? FC
FIONA SAYS: LET HIM BE
You couldn’t change him when you lived together, so what makes you think you can change him now?
He’s decided he wants a mother rather than a partner and I feel you may just have to let him be the master of his own destiny.
Do you still care for him, though?
It rather sounds like it and. if so, I think you should be careful.
He doesn’t sound like the kind of person with whom you could find lasting happiness or a rewarding relationship.
