When Breaking a Promise is the Right Thing to Do
Many spouses and adult children can recall a time when they made a promise to their loved one that they would always take care of them, vowing to never move them to a care facility. These promises are often made at the best of times and with the best of intentions. When thinking about the future, it is hard to imagine not being able to do all the things we are capable of today. We cannot forecast what the future will be like if we have a physical change, let alone a diagnosis such as Dementia or Alzheimer’s.
