I just want to thank all of you for your support during my Mom's long decline. She passed away peacefully this morning at 89 years of age.
I am very grateful to have found this forum just as we were moving her into a nursing home last November. In addition to the useful responses you all provided to my questions, I also learned a lot from the questions and concerns of others.
I will definitely refer others to agingcare.com in the future, and I wish you all the best with your individual challenges.
