They currently live 400 miles away in an assisted living facility. The place is nice/awesome but they are expensive and my parents money is going to run out in about 10 months. They will not do full medicaid so they would need to be moved out at that point to a place that does. Meanwhile my father is miserable there and my mom is always crying. Before all this happened my father had considered the idea of moving here to live with us but now it has become a necessity.
My mom has dementia. My father was diagnosed end of march with brain atrophy. He is a fall risk. My mom has fallen too however I have heard the caretakers tell me they "caught" him "Pushing" my mom along with his walker. He is very impatient, doesnt understand my mothers illness and I am sure when she stops suddenly in front of him when he is walking with his walker, well I could see him pushing her out of the way. The intent may not be to push her down but.......
I just recently lost my job so the time seems perfect to do this right now. I am totally willing to care for them and have MANY more resources locally in VA than they do where they are located. So, how would i make this transition an easy one? I would be taking a family member or a friend with me for the drive back so there are two of us in case one or other need the bathroom.
Any suggestions would be welcome! TY
