I feel bad leaving grandma?

Long story short I have lived with my grandparents my entire 25 years. 2 years ago my grandfather was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. He just entered into hospice yesterday. I was offered an amazing job about 3 hours from where I live now. I am moving this weekend. My grandmother has been guilting me the past 3 weeks about how she is goIng to be alone and how I should reconsider. Am I making the wrong choice?

This may sound crazy...but why not take your grandmother with you to your new place at first? At this stage in life, she may feel ripped apart and want support, especially with her husband in hospice. Take her wtih you for the first week or so, go to visit your grandpa, and let her stay there then (if she wants). This... More

Your grandmother is about to loose the two most important people in her life, her husband and her cherished granddaughter. Of course she is upset and probably overwhelmed by the prospect. Wouldn't you be? It is unfortunate that your new job came along at this particular time. You must go because this is the beginning... More
