To Move Closer or Move my mom

by Shaunice
(Maryland)

My stepdad just passed away. He was the caregiver for my mom. I live out of state but came home to make sure my mom was taken care of. Now that the services and everything have happened, I want to move my mom in with me. She cannot take care of herself due to having a stroke some years ago.


She needs assistance with getting dressed, bathed, etc. Moving her to an assisted living facility is not an option. She says that she does not want to move. My family, job, life are in the other state. Should i move here where she is or do i risk her resenting me if I move her in with me?
