My frail, newly-demented 94-yr-old mother is hell-bent on moving back to a city she lived in eight years ago. That was the last place she "was herself" (quote), drove, had lots of friends (that she has now outlived), and life was wonderful. I've tried to tell her it would not be the same as she remembers it. She believes she could step right back to the way it used to be, totally ignoring the fact that she has aged considerably and has many issues she didn't have them.
Anyway, how do I respond to her rants (she is absolutely livid about this)? Do I appease her, and seem to go along with it? It's impossible to reason with her. Or... do I figure out a way that she can actually make this move? She would be totally alone, no relatives there, nothing... Of course, the only way it would at all be feasible would be assisted living. She is now living independently, but thats got to change soon, wherever she lands.
