Is it safe to move an elder with dementia to another state?
I am planning to move to another state, and I am having a hard time trying to decide if I am doing the right thing to take my 81 year old mother who has dementia. See I have no support here at all and a friend in Tacoma, WA is trying to help me start over and has provided me with a lot of resources and support to get started. I dont really want to leave mom here because I dont trust my sisters and uncle would even go visit her, but on the other hand I have to try to get my mom to fly from here,(Maryland). I am going to try to have the assisted home already set up in fact I am going to visit first before I make my final decision. Am I making a mistake by taking my sole caregiver duties to another state?
