Our daughter is getting married out of town (where she lives about 200 miles away). Her grandmother wants to go to the wedding of couse, and we would like her to be able to go to the wedding. She is 95 years old, has mobility issues and early stages of dementia. I (the mother of the bride) do not want to and pretty much won't be able to watch over her while all the usual wedding stuff is going on. She lives by herself with a caregiver that comes twice a day. She is homebound pretty much, uses a walker and has had incontinence issues. Has visitors occasionally. She's really determined to go. Have any of you been in a similar situation and hired someone to be an aide under similar circumstances? She has long term care insurance and we could maybe hire someone through the company that handles her daily care, or ask her daily caregiver if she could go on an out of town adventure. Her usual caregiver is wonderful, but is married and has a family. My husband and I want to have a day off from caregiving to enjoy our daughter's wedding, but have her sweet grandmother there to celebrate the best she can. And we don't want to ask any other friends or family to do it because that hasn't worked out in the past. We end up getting blow by blow descriptions of all the frustating things she does that people aren't used to. She would most likely have to spend at least one night maybe two. Any advice would be appreciated.
