“A blessing is the only way I can describe being in my 70’s and still having my mother, my best friend here to talk to every day. As wonderful as it is, last year while I was getting some groceries for her, she fell and broke her hip. It was her 3rd fall in less than a month. I started to worry about her. I’m 70 and my husband is 73. As my husband and I are getting older ourselves, I did not know what options were available to us. It scared me to witness my mother so frail, to think I may need to leave her in the nursing home where she was recovering and sell the home my father built, to think that one day my children may need to consider this same issue for my husband and I. I couldn’t imagine making them feel that guilt I felt.”
In an open letter to Safe Care Home Support on Facebook, Betty K. wrote about the guilt that she felt when trying to decide if it was time for her mother to stay in the nursing home she was recovering from surgery in. Watching her mother lose her independence was not only heartbreaking but it made her wonder about her own children having to think about that for her or her husband one day. With joy, however, Betty announced at the end of her post that she found a solution to put everyone’s minds at ease.
