My husband and I are ready for retirement, and are transitioning from NJ to Delaware. My mom (84) will need to move also, to a complex.
I am the only caregiver nearby and she must go when we go, but will be angry and wanting to move in with us. We are new empty nesters and are not ready for a third person in our home, particularly since our relationship has never been good. When we mentioned moving last year, she was agitated and angry for months, so the topic was dropped. She doesn't know yet that our house is for sale and we intend to move in the next six months. How can I help the transition be as painless as possible for all concerned?
