My mother who was a minister's wife in an evangelical church for 30 years moved from W VA, to Maine 13 years ago to be near us, her daughters who are no longer of that faith. Now that she has had to move to assisted living for memory reasons, she longs to be in a facility that is connected with her church and faith.
Unfortunately the only one is in Pennsylvania about 500 miles from Maine.
She wants me, her daughter and POA, to help her do this. She says she'll miss us but that being where she has people of her faith around her will make it worth it.
Currently someone either my sister or I, or my daughter, or two other caregivers,
visit or take her out every day, sometimes twice a day, because she is so unhappy where she lives now. Her current location is a facility she had chosen herself, but refused to go to until she had to do so due to her confusion and memory loss.
In New England there are very few Christian based facilities so moving to a place like she wants and remaining closer is not really an opton.
Has anyone else had to make a similar decision? If so, how did it go?
Thankyou for any advise you can offer.
