I'm behind in my posts for today, having wasted yesterday evening looking at assisted living centers near Camp Borepatch. Mom's retirement community has told us that she needs more help than they're set up to give, and so we're going to have to move her.
My thought is a place near by, so that we could see her more than a couple times a year. There are two within walking distance, so there's no shortage of options. Older Brother is looking at places near his home as well.
Mom is bummed out, as you'd expect. Not only does she realize that she's losing her faculties, but she's looking about moving away from the area she and Dad chose to retire. I'm convinced that having her close to family is critical, but expect her to be very unhappy that she can't get up to Santa Fe to visit Dad's grave.
Life is complicated. I'll be back later.
