Chronic Pain: Spouses Tell Their Stories as Caregivers
There Is Life After a Dementia Diagnosis

Securing Caregiving Services From a Distance

Dear Carol: My 83-year-old mother lives in Arizona and I live in Minnesota. She’s basically healthy and has no cognitive issues. Mom came to visit me here last month and I tried to talk her into staying but she says she still wants to live in a warm climate. She’s been in Arizona for over 20 years and has had many friends but her circle is naturally becoming smaller, We both know that she’ll need assisted living before long but for now some home services may be enough. I’d still like to bring her up here before she needs assisted living. Is it right to push her to move? – JLB
