She has vascular dementia. She permanently stays in a nursing home now, since her boyfriend decided it is too much work to care for her within their home. I live 3 hours away and I'm the only Daughter caring for her, so it gets costly getting hotel rooms. My Mom loves my pets too when she sees them so this is a bonus for her. I started bringing her for 1 week at a time visits last year; 3 to 4 times per year. Now this year, her boyfriend thinks these visits are more harmful for her because she gets reluctant to return to the facility, or even back to my hometown. Advice on whether it's still healthy to bring her for these visits within my home?
