How do I deal with guilt related to wanting to put my 88 year old mother in assisted living?
My 88 year old mother has been living with us for nearly 7 years. Both my husband and I work full time which results in her being at home alone for many hours. Lately she has been falling a lot. She has had 3 falls in the last 6 weeks all resulting in injuries. One of her injuries was a broken arm. She cannot dress herself and making meals is very difficult if not impossible. I spoke to her about going to an assisted living facility until her arm heals. I want her to stay there permanently but I do not know how to tell her. Also, I am having a lot of guilt feelings were I am not sleeping well at night. Any advice?
