We have started to work on figuring out how to take care of my Mom and Dad as they get older. My Dad is on dialysis and he needs a walker to get around. He goes to the kidney center three days a week and spends four hours at a time in. I have been talking to a place called WD home care in Los Angeles about what they will charge to have home visits for the two of them, mostly meaning my Mom. She is still able to get around just fine and she can still drive, although I admit that it can be pretty scary to watch her try to get around in traffic. She has been doing okay, but she has a whole lot of little things that need to be attended to. It is going to be hard to get her to allow a nurse into her home. She is really determined to hold onto her independence as long as she is able to do so. The good thing is that money is not a huge issue for the foreseeable future. My Mom has always had money and she was extremely clever about investing her money. In fact the two of them still own a really valuable piece of real estate that they are getting ready to sell. The money from that is going to last them a very long time, as the two of them are extremely frugal and they are not going to be spending huge sums of money on expensive luxury goods. It is going to be a good thing for me, since they have put me, my brother and both of my sisters on the deed as owners of this piece of land. They will have enough money to last them for a long time.
