This Week's Carenote - 03/06/12

My three siblings and I want to give our mother, who has been diagnosed with stage 4 metastasized liver cancer, the best possible care for her remaining time on Earth.  Instead of having her stay in the senior facility where she is now, we are considering renting a house near a beach or on a lake with 24-hour nursing care. We would be more than happy to pay $3000 to $4000 (what the facility is costing now) if we knew that our mom could look out into this grand world to see something beautiful and serene and allow us the "peace of mind" that there was caregiving with her and hospice nearby when the time came.
 
We are wondering if other caregivers have tried something similar.  Our mother knows she needs care, but wants to be in a place where she can  enjoy her time as much as possible while having the proper care necessary and available. 
 
Sincerely looking for ideas,
 
Frank
