I'm dreading Christmas.
We spent Thanksgiving morning with Mom at the Assisted Living. After she ate her Thanksgiving lunch and settled in to her chair we (sister and nephew) left and celebrated at my sisters. Now we are looking at Christmas. We had to sell Mom's townhouse to pay for her care at the AL so there is no home. I think it would be to hard on her to try and take her out of the AL and then have to take her back away from us. Am I awful for not wanting to but me and her through that? She has dementia and keeps talking about when she goes home. I visit about 3 to 5 times a week and each time she has small piles of things packed to give us to take home so there won't be so much to move when the time comes. I live in the family home and the reason she had a townhouse was because she can't maneuver the steps to get in the house from the outside or get to the upstairs. My sisters 2 bedroom condo is on the ground floor but there isn't room for her to stay there. I just envision a horrible scene and I already feel like the child from hell by placing her in AL. Is taking them out a good idea? She has never left ( she has only been there since August 2012) except to go to doctors appointments.
