My mother lives in a senior care facility in independent living. There is a waiting list for assisted living - where she needs to be. She is 89 and in the process of being diagnosed. Our family is going out of state for 2 weeks at Christmas, driving over 1,000 miles. We do not believe this is a good trip for her at this time. How do we tell her that she will be staying home and no family member will be staying behind with her. Her senior apt complex has many workers, provides meals, entertainment, weekly house cleaning, but she just wants to stay in her apt or be with my sister and I. How do we best talk to her?
