Man moving boxes

So yesterday we moved Mom to the assisted living facility. I did not expect the strong emotional and physical draining I felt by the end of the day. It was very, very difficult. My mom was very sad about leaving her apartment. I told her she did not have to move to the assisted living. I was very scared to say this but felt I had to allow her to be in control, no matter the consequences.

Mom and her boyfriend

A few weeks ago, I wrote about my mom's decision to finally move into an assisted living facility at age 95. I have not written about it since as I was fearful she would change her mind. I also spoke of how she wanted to be near her friends.
