I cared for my mother for 9 years in her own home after she had a stroke. She worked until she was 72 and had more contributions toward retirement and for that reason only we were able to live together without my having to work. I would do it all over again in a heart beat. My mother was widowed at 38 with 6 children to raise - the oldest 15 and the youngest (me) 7 months. When someone is so good to their family you return the favor n'est pas?
