I have a soon to be 89 aunt. She is my late father's oldest sister & she has NO children. She was always a wonderful aunt and had a great male companion in a small apartment, he is 96. She started to forget to take her medication, got some memory loss, had poor nutrition & even when I tried to help, she never followed a good care for heself. Memory was a big issue. She recently fell down & broke her right hip femur having emergency surgery. 2 months later, still in rehab hospital. Recently the roommate family decided to take him being that I told them that she could no longer care for herself much less cook or care for him because of her multiple health issues (high blood pressure, TIAs, heart stents, fall risk and more)...I have decided witth social worker that ALF is the best suitable option. I feel so bad and sad for my aunt. At 42, with 2 kids and a busy career, and a insanely busy professional life, I can't have her @my home. I am paying for some portion of her care because she was on Medicare & Medicaid but I wish I could do lots more for her!! I feel so bad & sad for her.
