Wow, what an ordeal to find the right housing for my elderly parents.

by Susette

My elderly parents are quite a bit up in age now and I have been attempting to do enough research so we do not have to move them but once more (we have moved them twice in less than a year). My husband says we should just hold off doing anything until they start showing signs of needing help but, I just can't imagine them slipping and falling or leaving the stove top on all night until a fire happens...he says I worry too much. Anyway, it is really troubling to find just the right place as I have two sisters that are not involved but want to comment as to their driving times (neither one lives in town) and how difficult for them to get to and from to visit Mom and Dad, but never suggest they come for a visit or an extended stay. So I believe that a assisted living place that is close by is maybe going to be the choice, I am just torn about moving them, once again and then them not be happy. Some of these places look good on the surface but make me nervous about the operations of the place.

Anyway, thanks for listening.
