“When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice. Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.” – Billy Graham
My mother’s condition has deteriorated and she can no longer stay in independent housing for seniors. I am trying to decide which assisted living facility would be best for her. It is going to be a huge change for her and the transition will be rough given all the things she has collected over the years. I hope to make a decision by this weekend.
I offered to have her move in with us but she thought that our house wasn’t set up well for the type of care she needed. The one bright light in all of this is that everything will be done for her, including medications. This will be a relief to me. I am going to take her to see the palliative care doctors at Duke to see if they can help me make some decisions regarding pain medication and quality of life issues.
I am so sorry that I have been distracted. Please pray for me. My mom is the 4th family member that I have cared for at the end of life and each time I have been glad that I did.
I feel like the comet above as I run through all of the places for Mom. Please take a moment and pray for her and for me.
