How do I get my parents home for the holidays?
I'm dreaming of having Mom and Dad home for Thanksgiving but here's the deal. Mom had a mild stroke, has a very high level of anxiety, she's on the Excelon Parch and Namenda (sp?) with handable mobility problems and very low vision, some incontinence, plus Diabetic. Dad, is a wheelchair bound Stroke and heart attack patient, totally incontinent and requires help with eatting for which he is very dis-agreeable for family members to help with the later 2 issues.
Am I bing unrealistic about trying to bring back a portion of the good ole days? My help is limited, has anyone been here done this?
Mom is not likely to leave Dad and I understand. Of course I could have Thanksgiving Dinner at the NH, but the dreamer in me would love to have them home together just one more time.
Thank you all for your help.
