We have the space to take in my grandmother, but my husband is vehemently against her moving in with us and thinks it's way too much work. What do I do?
I am 29 years-old with a great husband, home and one year-old. I am my grandmother's POA and have handled everything for her because my parents are deadbeat drug addicts. Her dementia has recently worsened, not to the point of wandering off, but she has absolutely no short-term memory. She calls me upwards up 40 times a day, hysterically crying because she can't remember where she is - I had to put her in a nursing home. We have a guest room in our basement and she has social security income that could cover a caregiver coming a couple times a week. She would be much happier with us and it's getting to the point where I dread answering her calls and visiting her because she's just so upset. I feel terrible I don't know what to do. I work from home, my mother in law comes over 2-3 times a week to watch my son. I could realistically have her live with us, we have the space, but my husband is vehemently against her moving in with us and thinks it's way too much work. I just don't know what to do.
