I always appreciate the perspectives that this group provides as we all navigate our roles as caregivers. I'm at a decision point with returning my mom to assisted living and could use some advice or a reality check. She's 92 and is generally healthy, but can't be alone for too long. She is a fall risk, so I prepare her meals, do her laundry, and generally keep an eye on things. Dad died in May 2019, and she stayed on in the small, top shelf AL facility where they were together. I made the decision to temporarily bring her home in March when we were unclear on what COVID would bring. I have never been inclined to keep her permanently at home. Caring for my dad with advanced Alzheimer's disease depleted me of my life's supply of caregiver energy, so I don't have much to give. I have been 100% teleworking since March 6, and have had the bandwidth to prepare meals, do laundry, and try to keep her at least somewhat entertained. I got my return to the office email last week, so my spare time will evaporate. I am excited to return to return to work. I love my career and am ready to get started on a new project that was stalled during the lock down. I am 60 years old, so this will probably be my last big project before I retire. I contacted the facility where mom was, and the good news is that her bright, beautiful apartment is being completely renovated and will be even nicer. They have agreed to have her return when it's ready in a few weeks. Although I had hoped to keep her home until January, this seems like a good juncture. The facility is in Phase 2 of a three phased reopening. Residents have resumed activities, group dining, and salon services with distancing guidelines. They are allowing residents to socialize, but external guests are still limited to the library or patio by appointment. Residents can leave for medical or dental appointments. By comparison, it's only my spouse and me at home, no kids, and very little activity in the house. I work all day, and then try to get some exercise and relax a little before bed. I'm inclined to make the move. Thoughts?
