MIL's outing

Thursday, December 06, 2012

We go back and forth and we decided that if we just got her out of the nursing home periodically that she wouldn't hate it so much. So today I changed an appmt with a client so that I could take her to the church luncheon for the quilting and crafting ladies. They were so happy to see her and she had a grand time, good food, etc. She used to be a member of that group. So that was a good thing.
So on Saturday, one of the neighborhoods here has their 30th year of holiday decorating, lights, etc and we usually drive through the neighborhood. So we will take her out to Ruby Tuesdays and then through the lights. If we can just keep doing these things, maybe she won't feel so bad about being there. And we wont kill our backs.
I imagine she was worn out after being gone for the day! Thanks all for your words of encouragement and advice. So many of us are going through the same things. I will have to live with my sons as neither one of them will have any money to support me anywhere else.

    I think your plan is a great one. Small steps at a time but holding firm.

    I think you came up with a wonderful idea. I took my mom out to lunch etc until she got to bad to go. The nursing facility mom was in also took them to ball games etc.

I have given my daugters strict orders she is not to take me into her home. I wouldn't do that to her. Does you mom own anything. She should be able to go on Medicaid. That is how my mom was able to stay in the nursing home. All you need to do is ask the social worker there.
