I brought my mom with me from PA to AZ when I was 50 and divorced for 20 years....she was 75 and widowed for 20 years. For first 10 years we traveled and had fun exploring all of AZ, as we had the rest of the US. At 85 she declined physically and now at 90 both physically and mentally. I am 24/7 as of Jan when I retired after working 49 years. At present I have hospice help. When I need to get away I hired 24/7 aide to stay. Thanks be my budget permits - if I am careful. Sis and bro distant both geographically and emotionally. About 1xweek have to give myself pep talk - though I know it is the right thing to do I need to keep my spirits up. How do others cope?
