Shortly before my beloved father died, I promised him that I would care for Mom at home just as I had cared for him. I hope that, by sharing my experiences as my mother’s caregiver, others will be encouraged to care and advocate for their own elderly or disabled loved ones. You’ll never regret the time and attention you lavish on them. Love demands no less.
When I moved back to our family home to care for my elderly parents in March 2013, Mom could still walk unassisted around the house and used a rollator walker for walks around the block.
