Long distance caregiving. I have traveled 6,000 miles in 2 months and my mom won't consider moving.
Mom lives 500 miles away in assisted living. I've traveled 6,000 miles plus in past two months to care for her, yet she won't consider moving nearer and my sister (also long distance but not a frequent caregiver) also opposes the move. This has been going on for years now, though visits are at top level ever due to mom's frequent falls. We have a caregiver who comes in daily, but I don't feel I can not go when mom's in the hospital. She has a "lifecare" plan and is vested in her condo/apartment but doesn't really have many close friends in her community and seems lonely/depressed.
