It was very difficult to assume the role of care giver and decision maker for my mother after my father died. They lived in Utah, and I discovered that she could not cope on her own, so I had to help her sell her house, get rid of many of her belongings, and get established in an assisted living facility here in Beaverton. It was a very fine line to walk to try to be respectful of her feelings and ideas, yet be responsible for her well being since she was no longer able to care for herself as Alzheimer's Disease progressed. This disease is looming for many of us in the future.
