How did you come to the decision to leave your spouse and your family and move in with a needy parent?
I can’t come to the decision to take the leap. So my sister and I jump around and try to create supportive plans to check on my mom frequently, using medical alert, frequent phone calls, and cameras are next on my list. None of these things provide 100% security.
Long ago my mother made it clear that she didn’t want to live with us, she wanted to live alone. But at 95, she is needing so much help and support.
But leaving family and moving in full-time just doesn’t compute into my head.
I just want to know how some of you made the decision and how it worked out with your families and spouses.
