I, too, had the grand experience to taking care of my mother the last 3 years of her life, after the death of my father 8 years previously. Mother had about $300,000.00; however, her care exhausted all but $80,000 of that money. I do thank the Lord that she and Daddy had been frugal so I had to money to take care of her in the way I would like to be taken care of (full time caregiver, as I traveled for 1 year while she was with me, and allowing me to continue working fulltime.)
