Dinner at Fats... yum!
Deciding on how to care for an aging parent must be really difficult. Each family is different, and has different needs, so there can't be one answer for everyone. My grandmother really thrived in an assisted living program, as she was so social and enjoyed that aspect of it. On the other hand, my grandfather seemed to go downhill quickly after being placed in one.
Thankfully my parents are still young and very healthy. Although I have been threatening them both with the "Sunshine Home" since I was a teenager, when this time comes for them, their happiness will be the most important thing to me. I will gladly welcome them into my home, or help them in anyway they need. There has never been a day in my life when I couldn't count on my parents to be there for me if I needed them. I hope they know they can always count on me for love and support too.
