After reading about all the problems everyone has with aging parents, and other relatives, I wonder about the plans people are making for themselves. I didn't find this site until after my parents and in-laws were gone. Could have used it then, especially with my mother-in-law.
My husband is now who I am taking care of. But I worried about both of us since our closest child lived 6 hours away. So, we packed ourselves up, moved 6 hours to our closest child, and moved into the independent living section of a retirement community. As the need arises, we can move to areas with more services. Our children will not need to worry about what to do with us, worry that we will fight a move to assisted living or want to move in with them. They can rest easy, knowing we are well cared for and safe.
So, what are your plans for older living?
