From December 2018 to February 2020 I spent nearly every day, including a month of 24/7 day & night care, with my mother in her independent, then assisted living, then rehabilitation centers. Mom’s spirit was always upbeat, and she developed cordial friendships, but then we had to make decisions about dementia and nursing care that would maintain her dignity and personal comfort.
