I’ve been responsible for my mother’s care for the last 10 years. She has suffered from periods of severe depression all her life. In the last 10 years there have been 5 times that she’s had to live with me and my husband for months at a time due to depression. After living in assisted living and then a memory care assisted living, her money is gone and we reluctantly moved her to a nursing home last month. My question is this - there is literally no one but me to be responsible for her and to visit her. My adult children live far away. My husband and I have just retired. We want to travel and potentially move to Texas from Massachusetts, which is where our younger daughter and only grandchild live. I don’t know what to do. How do I balance my obligations to my mother with the things my husband and I want to do now that we are retired. My mother has dementia but still knows who people are. She’s not oriented to place or time. If we don’t visit her, no one does. There is just no one around all all her friends are deceased. I’m so upset and crying all the time. I don’t know what to do. Has anyone been in a situation like this? I’m so exhausted from the last 10 years. We need a break.
