Once we noticed that our aunt’s memory was beginning to fail in 1998, my sister and I became her caregivers. Through the efforts of relatives and paid help we were able to keep her in her own home until 2002. At this time it became obvious that it was dangerous for her to continue living independently. Moving our aunt from her home to assisted living was the most difficult part of our care-giving adventure. I have these tips to offer for anyone facing this very difficult and heart breaking task.

The only thing Medieval about Knights Inn is the name. You knew that didn’t you? Ahhhh well, live and learn. What it is, is a motel. Not even a semi-nice hotel. It’s a motel. So I walk into the somewhat small office with no extras and plop down my 40 bucks. The night clerk was, umm, there… if ya catch my drift. That’s all he needs to be though, this isn’t a hotel. It’s a motel… did I say that already?
But still, I needed a change of scenery. That lead Sarah and me to Tucson to hike a bit and check out the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum (a post on that is coming up soon). We wanted to spend the night, and I got online to find a decent place the morning we left – the day after Thanksgiving, no less!
Let it go. Give yourself permission to experience a fresh start. There is a great big beautiful world out there with lots of love, life and happiness that has your name on it.
