I don't have to worry about that since my husband and I both have deceased parents. BUT if they were alive we would not put them in a home. That is such a sad aspect of our culture in this country, disposable parents. They raise you, feed you clothe you put up with the stress you gave them, and you don't even return the favor? Pathetic.

No, and I think that would be a very hard choice to make. I have already had this discussion with my mom. She understands that I will probably house her in a nice home if I am unable to care for her. It is not that I wouldn't want to take care of her, but I simply don't trust myself to know what to do. I am not a nurse, and I simply don't feel comfortable with her life being in my hands. I would be freaking out over little things all the time, and I don't think that would be good for me or her.

Nope and never will. I don't understand how someone can do that to people that took care of them half of their life. Sad.

 You don't understand for you've never been faced with LITERALLY not being able to care for them due to a debilitating disease.

No, my mom is 45 and in better health than me lol. The state wanted us to put my brother (21) in a home because of his condition but that's just wrong because he has the mind capacity of a 21 yr old boy he doesn't belong in a home .

I agree, there are sometimes legal issues that intervene with elders staying home or medical issues they cannot be home anymore.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.

My father passed away and he did so at home with my mother and I taking care of him. My mother will stay with me. There is no way I would put her in a home.
