Re: Hello! I'm new..forced my parents to an AL..burdened by guilt.

Dear Kate,

You did the right thing. Your parents need more care than they were getting at home. You and your brother did them a huge favor by getting them into a place where they will get the care and supervision that they need. We waited far too long to get my Mom into a NH and it nearly drove me batty.

No guilt allowed. You did the best you could. The best for your parents, proving how much you love them. Their rection is wrong, quite simply, they do not know what they are talking about.

Hang in there. They will settle down. Later they will forget all about giving up their old home. The new place will be 'home'...

Love,

Martha
