My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about 3 years ago. She's now stage 4 or early stage 5. She's in an ALF in Indiana near where she lived the past 30 years. I live >600 miles away in Pennsylvania. She lives in an "independent living" apartment primarily because she declines any assisted living help. It's become clear she needs to move to a memory care facility very soon. I'm considering moving her to memory care near me in PA. My hope is by being closer and being present more often I'll be better informed and more able to work closely with the staff. The logistics of the move will be difficult but not impossible. She won't want to move far away, but she won't want to move to memory care where she's at either. I'm thinking a single move now, even if it's long distance, is better than a local move then deciding later she needs the longer move. I would appreciate hearing your thoughts.
