My mom passed in April after a long battle with Alzheimer's. She was 91. She stayed in our home but had hospice care the last year or so, which I highly recommend. Thank you everyone on this forum for your advice and support. It has been an eight year journey taking care of my parents but I do not regret it (my dad passed in 2014 at 97). I am fortunate in that my mom had the funds to hire caregivers, so we did not have to do it all alone. We dedicated so much of our lives to making sure she got the best care possible and was as comfortable and happy as she could be. We planted a tree in her honor and I will visit her home country to bury her ashes.
