My mom is 85 and has suffered from dementia for several years. Recently her doctor told me that she is "rounding another corner" and that it's time to find a memory care facility. My mom refuses to live with me & I am the only child left to see to her needs. I have no idea how to bring the subject up because years ago she made me promise not to put her in a nursing home. I feel guilty although, the doctor told me not to; that I am doing the best for my mom. Doctor said that I'd feel more guilty if something happened to her at home.
I'm sure that there a many of you out there that have gone through this situation and I would love some suggestions.
