Subject: RE: Talk with Dr. V
I was wondering if Dr. V has talked to Dad about all this. I feel that perhaps if Dr. V talked to Dad and told him it would be the best thing if they lived in assisted living and to perhaps move closer to family. Dad may come to the decision on moving on his own. I feel that, in order for him to cooperate and for him to feel that this is the best for him and his wife, he needs to be part of the decision-making and not be told what to do. I know it may come to us doing what is best for them, but it would be much harder on him and mom if we had to step in and force them to move.
I know Dad respects him and I think that Dad may be a little leery of us trying to tell him what he needs to do. I don't think that Dad could come anywhere without Mom.
I am going to start looking for a place that would work for them if they decided to move to Houston. I guess if they wanted, they could stay in FL in assisted living, but it would be much harder. I am also going to look to see what it would cost for Aunt Jay to live there too, if she wanted to move with them, but I doubt she would, but asking her is free. I feel without Mom, Aunt Jay may be lost and I really don't know who she could trust with her banking if she stayed in FL.
Have a great day.
