Had a great 2week of not worrying trying not to think it was hard but I did it. But now the bitch is back.
When we are young our parents help us with many things from advice to money when ever we needed them. When they get old we think this is the time for me to pay them back right. If you are "MIDDLE CLASS" unfortunately the money just isn't there and you wind up not knowing how the hell you can help.
So what happens if you aren't ready for a nursing home? What if your body says you can live alone but your brain has other plans? A nursing home is not the place where you want your parent to be because they are still full of life and still able to enjoy life. Assisted Living would be great right? Well you are "MIDDLE CLASS" do your parents bring in $5000.00 a month? Did they plan for this? Can you as the child cover the money they need?
Chances are your children are also "MIDDLE CLASS" if they are LUCKY hahaha.
SO WHAT THE HELL DO YOU DO AS THE CHILD?
If there is anything I can learn form this it would be to be ready to be put in a nursing home and if you are lucky enough your family will come to see you form time to time.
