Does your family have a clearly defined set of core values?
Here’s what I mean.
One of the core values for my family is that no one goes into a nursing home.
My uncle took care of my grandmother, my grandfather and my step-grandfather (all under the same roof). My grandmother took care of my great-grandmother. When my grandmother got sick, my mother and my uncle got a nurse to come to the house daily, but they refused to remove my grandmother from her home. It is just not something we do. So, I know that if something happens to my mother, she’s going to live with me or we’re going to make sure that she can stay in her home.
Are there rules that your family lives by? This is something that you need to think about so that it’s clear and everyone in your family knows what values you all stand for together.
