Moving at 94!

In the RV

In the RV

My mom is 94 last May. She broke her leg in January just after surgery to improve her circulation–she was probably still under the influence of pain meds. So she had to move to assisted living. That took away lots of her independence and it was difficult for my brother as he is not yet retired. He was visiting her every day off and also taking her to the doctors and handling her bills. I’m retired and the climate here in Colorado is so nice, plus we have the grandkids to keep us smiling. So thought it would be great if she could come live near me.
It has been quite an adventure. Almost a week of packing her stuff and eliminating what we could not move. Two days in the RV hauling her stuff in a UHaul trailer, and then moving into the new place in mid-September and all the work to get unpacked and settled.
So she has moved into an assisted living home in Arvada that is about 15 minutes away from me. She can come over for dinner and we can visit frequently. Here I have just set up a “senior” remote for her TV. I’m so glad she is closer now! Even though she had to leave the area she has lived for almost all of her 94 years–the Chicago suburbs. And she misses our other cousins and my brother too. But I tell her she gets to see ME more often!
