I reduced my hours when mum moved in five years ago, and then temped until my husband died 17 months ago. It would be nice to work ! Only today I discussed it with my daughter who said yes but you would need carers (mum is frail) and she would be demanding when you get home! We decided that I continue going to craft clubs for a break and if carers are needed then they cover my social time not work time. Quality of life for me. Financially a bad decision for me, but I will have to manage. I won't have the money I would have had if I had continued working but my husband died suddenly so it's concentrated my mind that I try and have some fun. Difficult when mum lives with you but it is doable with 3 beautiful and generous adult children who also act as back up to their auntie who cares for their other nana.
