So....we are under a winter storm warning here in upstate New York. So, I am posting early just in case our power goes out. I think it is just going to be snow where we live (amount unknown) but where my aging mother in law lives, it is going to be a blizzard. And people who could normally take her in are in the same situation.
This is when long distance caregiving gets interesting, because my elderly relative is so resistant to leaving her home for any reason. We were able to get her to safety for Sandy (a combination of a relative and a family friend took her in) but this time the caregivers may be in a worse situation than she will be.
We are working on it. Oh, what fun....please, let me remember this so I don't put my son through this type of thing when my time comes.
