Well I bit the bullet and did it - moving mom into AL this week.

I found a very nice facility that was reasonably priced. She is apprehensive but accepting it better than I thought she would. Wish us luck!


Brave of you! I hope you will both be happy. The only AL's that I have seen are so nice that I WANT to move in!
Congrats for making the decision. May I highly recommend that you continue to be her strong advocate. Don't be fooled by the glitz of an expensive ALF and think the care matches the cost. The ALF was only good for my Mom until she required further help with dressing, bathing, getting up and ready for bed.
