As Mom gets older and her hearing changes, crowds become more difficult. First, she can’t always hear what people are saying. Second, she processes more slowly so it can be hard for her to follow the conversation. And if your family is anything like ours, many conversations are happening at the same time – and they are loud!

So, I have decided not to take her to the family Thanksgiving celebration. I have reserved four seats at her place for lunch. She lives in a senior apartment community and they are having a special Thanksgiving dinner. One of my sisters has volunteered to spend the day with mom. I think this small group will be perfect and she won’t have to leave the comfort and security of her place. Will everyone understand or will some people feel left out? Parent care is complicated.
