I've been caring for both my parents since Sept. in their home which is 2-1/2 hours from where I live. I told them in the past that I would care for them but that was when they were OK with me going to my place and coming here periodically. I haven't seen my adult children or grandchildren for 4-1/2 months plus I was helping my friend at his business and he needs me there. My parents have gotten so that they rely on me (I think too much). They can get around with their walkers in the house, they can do their medications and they can fix meals. They don't really need me 24/7 so I just sit here cooped up all day. Of course they don't want "strangers" in their house. My sister is coming from Arizona on Sunday for 2 weeks and we are going to present them with options for continued living (i.e. moving them to a mobile home or apartment near me, having someone come in to their home to help them (of course that would mean a stranger) They don't really have a lot of money to pay for someone to come in. I'm going to feel very, very guilty and like I am more or less deserting them by proposing them to move closer to me and I will feel selfish for wanting to go on with my life while I am able. I am 63 yrs. old and unmarried. My sister can't come out to relieve me for weeks at a time nor can she afford to fly here often. I don't know what else to do and I am afraid that when we present options to them that they will reject them. Am I wrong to want to have a life? The best option is to move the close by me, then I can still be there within 5-15 minutes when they need me for anything and I can visit them often.
