    My miserable advice. You aren't required to take it.

      I don't need to rent a room :).

      Plus this is also why I want to head over for an extended period of time. They have close to unlimited financial means and they don't seem to be using them. I keep telling my father why drive 150 miles round trip to the hospital, when there is a hotel around the corner from the hospital.

      Mom will have to change her diet, don't worry about it yourself. You could hire a personal chef. If she needs some physical therapy, pick up the phone and hire the best possible.

      I want to say I know she is getting stellar medical care, but at this point the "we can do it ourselves" just doesn't work for me anymore ..... when they can easily afford to pay a professional to do it.

        When my Dad was sick, my Mom called a neighbor to take him the 40 miles to the hospital. She didn't call 911 because the ambulance was too expensive and she didn't want to bother them. And my parents had plenty of resources as well.

        It's sort of a "Depression Era" mentality. It seems they feel guilty spending their money on themselves. I basically told my Mom after that to always dial 911 first, then call friends if she needed them.
