Does anyone take care of a parent or grandparent?
My husband's grandmother is to a point where she really needs to not live alone. She's 87 and her memory is failing. She's becoming more and more childlike every day. She is adament about not moving out of her house. My in-laws already care for my mother-in-law's father who is 92 and legally blind. They've been trying to care for my father-in-law's mom as well, but it's just too much.
My DH and I have been talking about moving in with his grandmother so she isn't alone and taking over her care. I'm wondering if any of you have experience with this and how it worked out. My in-laws are concerned that it would be too much to handle since we have three children (11, 9 and 8), but they can't take care of both parents. Their siblings are not much help. Suggestions?
