Mom has Alzheimer's and hates assisted living, should we bring her home to live with us?
Mom has stage 5/6 Alzheimer's, is in assisted living now, but absolutely hates it. Bringing Mom to live w/ us? What ?'s should we be asking? My husband and I have talked it over and basically he's willing to do this for me. We know there will be stress and he has an in home office/man-cave, plus a workshop to retreat to. I would be responsible for her care. I don't work; my kids are grown and I want to do this. She's 88 and in good health. I take her many places now and we enjoy each other. One main concern is if/when I need to go somewhere alone, my husband would not be able to take care of her. Are there facilities that I could take her to for a weekend or even a week at a time?
I'm sure there are other questions to be asked... I just don't know quite what I'm getting into.
