My mom and dad on their 70th wedding-anniversary.
Sadly, one of my siblings forced the parents into “assisted living”, which is more like a nursing-home or rest-home, than a place to LIVE.
So the rest of the family has been working, for months, to get the parents sprung.
Mom is 91 and Dad is 90, and they are surely with-it enough to be very upset over their current situation. Attorneys have been hired and one sibling has fought (with some of us) to get herself appointed as guardian. It is a good thing, yet it’s taking too long to get the parents out of Montana and closer to their kids (none of us live in Montana). I am hoping Mom and Dad are safe and on the East-coast, within the month.
If you are considering moving your own parents into a home, like this, do them a favor. Spend time there, yourself. See what living there would be like (the better places should have a guest room or two). if you don’t like it, do not place your own parents there.
Anyway; Happy 70th Anniversary, Florence and Bill.
