OK ladies, I am trying to get on and catch up. I left home yesterday morning early to go to my parents.My dad has been in a nursing home for rehab since Oct. He is now a perm. resident. He is unable to walk, incontinent, early stages of demintia on top of this health issues. My mom can not make decisions as she is in denial and a procrastinator.

She called me twice Saturday to tell me more info. On Sunday morning, I told my dh I really NEED to be here. So I packed and we left. I will be here through the week.

Turning over all medical POA to me and signing over anything else that we need to. Social workers, nursing home rehab, manager, doctor, DMV and lawyers. It is going to be a busy week.

I feel for you, I have been there. It is no fun having to make those decisions.  But they have to be done. I had to do that for my parents, even with help from siblings it sucked.  Hugs.

 In some aspects it is hard to care for our parents because they were always the caretakers.  I thought my daddy could leap a building in a single bound until the doctor told me he was gone.  It was an honor to do whatever I could. 

Be thankful that they are assigning the POA to you.  A dear friend's father is in his eightys, spending money he does not have and is about to put himself out of his home! Such a shame.  I hope you have a good week with your parents  and get everything worked out.  Hugs to you!!!

 I'm sorry Dawn :(   The only good thing about my parents dying young is I never had to see them go to nursing homes.
