Caring for an aging relative can be a full-time job, and many families decide it's best for their loved one to live in a nursing home. Many senior citizens have special health conditions such as Alzheimer's and dementia, which make it almost impossible to give them the level of care and attention they need while you're raising your own family.
It's not uncommon for a relative to get upset at the prospect of moving away. When an elderly parent refuses assisted living, you might feel guilty for even considering it in the first place. Although it's not an easy choice, it may be the best one for your loved one.

However, there comes a point in our lives when the roles may switch. And believe us when we say, it is not an easy transition for anyone - so don’t be so hard on yourself. It is a lot of responsibility, and it can be made even harder when you have children, a job, or a spouse.
