Taking parents back home for a visit.
My parents moved last year to an independent living facility near me from their remote lakehouse last year. All through the year I have been trying to maintain the lakehouse while caring for them. My dad (with dementia) ALWAYS wants to go back home..of course. Even my mom has forgotten how hard it was for them there.
Anyway, my brother is back this week. Good because I get some respite.. but not good in that he is taking them back up to the lakehouse. I have not taken them back because it was so hard and traumatic to get Dad to leave in the first place. He is sending me all kinds of pics of how happy they both are..just ecstatic... TO BE HOME!!!
I am DREADING what happens when they come back.. hoping my dad can come back and at least be where he was as far as being able to live in the apartment.
Just got a pic of both my my mom and dad beaming from ear to ear at the lake house. My brother = hero/saint/god me = mean daughter who took their home and independence away from them. Aint life of a caregiver sweet? :(
Ok .. this is just a rant. We will see how brother handles it when it is time to leave there home once more??
