I agree. My dad passed away 2 years ago after suffering from Lewy Body Dementia for years. I'm an only child so.....well, you know. My Mom will be 90 this year and we finally got her in a senior living apartment with lots of activities and she is so happy there. Now we're finally able to get away for longer periods (guilt free)! We're going to enjoy this while we can.
Good luck folks, I know it ain't easy.
Thanks for the all the good thoughts! Mom is here in FL and sister in Philly so the burden falls on us. We hope that we can take our planned summer trips GUILT FREE! Might be hard-----
