My husband and I want to take 3 weeks off this summer and do a road trip. My plan is to leave my mother and my son together, but Mom is a little anxious about it.
I am 62 and my 89-year-old mom lives with myself, my husband and my son. My son doesn't work. He has general anxiety disorder, but has a very loving relationship with his grandmother. The reason we all live together is she started falling about a year ago and her primary care doctor said the family should look into assisted living. My older sister lives 1,000 miles away and is executive for her will and money. We agreed both Mom and and I would sell our homes and we bought a beautiful large home and we used 50k of her funds to kick in down payment for this. We have our ups and downs but so far so good. My husband and I want to take 3 weeks off this summer and do a road trip. My plan is to leave my mother and my son together. He is quite capable and has even picked her up when she feel. I told my sister this was my plan since no one else in the family wants to take charge this seems the only way we will get a break. Naturally, Mom is a little anxious, but she was living alone last year so she is still better off having her grandson here. Any comments or support on this is really appreciated!
