: I am looking for information for my mother who is putting her mother in a home tomorrow. We are all having a difficult time with the fact that she is leaving her home.

Hi Kim
Your mother is doing the best thing for her, you and her own mother. My father-in-law went to an old age home 4 months ago. He lived with his daughter of 54yrs of age and her husband for 10 years. Her husband has now retired and dad has had to be moved. Two is company 3 is a crowd. And besides it is a big responsibility. The social worker's words exactly. My father-in-law took a while to adjust to the setup, the meals and the different way of life. It's a bit like boarding school. He has now adjusted and enjoys the company. There is so much to do and things that are organised for the aged. If he doesn't want to join in then he doesn't. But atleast he does have a choice. Each generation has their own lives to get on with and we are all different. My husband who's father it is could not get on with his dad all of the time. We call it
