What Carter and her siblings — she also has younger siblings in Virginia and Oregon — did not grow up talking about were the emotions (mainly guilt) that are bound to surface when you care for your aging parents, the true cost of caregiving, and what to do when that burden becomes too much to bear.
“I wish I had talked to someone who had been through this,” Carter says.
That is why Carter is sharing her family’s story.
“If you’re a family caregiver making long-term care decisions for a loved one, talk to someone who has done it,” she says. “We have no regrets about moving Dad to Highgate Senior Living. I can say I have no guilt about that decision, either. Now, I can just be the daughter again, not the caregiver.”
