watching loved ones age......it's a challenge.

My heart is breaking...it's time to place my loving parents into assisted living/skilled nursing facility. I know, and they know that it's time - for their own safety and well-being, but I never dreamed it would be this hard on me. It's like, they're moving into the last phase of their life....they know it, and I know it. They are actually "okay" with it, just a little sad that that after sharing the same bed for 64 years that now - although they'll be near each other, they'll not able to hold hands as they fall asleep. My mom is blind, and has dementia so she needs more help than my father.....we are working with a wonderful social worker who is helping us to find the best facility for them. I will do my very best for them - I do so want their twilight years to be filled with love and comfort.
