My elderly father lives with us, has for 4 yrs. He has some cognitive issues, and limited mobility and health issues...heart, vascular). He really is not a lot of trouble and love him dearly. We had to uproot him from his home of 30 yrs because of a stepsister that "owned it all". Anyway, in addition, my mom and step dad live down the street and are also in their 80's, and my mom is starting to need me more and more. I am it! Brother pretty much is in same boat with his mother in law now out of town so never comes up, rarely, to visit.
So now hubs has lost his job, we are in a smaller community, and we may have to move this time in order for him to find something in his field as this town offers nothing. I am overwhelmed with "what if's" at this point. What do I do IF we have to move? I am sick over the thought of leaving my mom and stepdad to fend for themselves with no other family here. And I am sick to move my dad and get him a whole new lineup of doctors. The ones he has were struggle enough! He doesn't do well with change of ANY kind.
Anyone else have to deal with this stuff? What did you do? How did you make your decision? We have savings, so need is not immediate, but it's just a blessing we have been able to stay here this long.
