Can I move out-of-state even though my mom has Alzheimer's?
My mom is 66 and still independent. She and our entire family are in denial of her diagnosis. Without giving too much detail, my family is very dysfuntional and dealing with them has been a life-long struggle. Setting aside my mother's diagnosis, moving would be a wonderful thing in so many ways for my family (my husband and I have three small children). However, I cannot help but feel very guilty at the prospect of leaving my mother knowing what the future holds for her. My sister and our extended family will make sure she is cared for, but I feel a strong sense of responsibility for my mother. What should I do?
