caregiving in an RV

When we were taking care of my Mom we bought a Larger RV with twin beds in the bedroom so one of us could sleep with her. Mom really enjoyed traveling in the RV she sat in the seat to the right of the driver. We did this because she so enjoyed looking out the front window at the scenery. She didn't remember much because she had dementia, but it didn't matter she was having fun. I would make cookies (a pkg from the freezer) and coffee....all a no no traveling down the road, but it made her happy. She was traveling and having her coffee as we moved along. She called the RV "the little house". This is such a wonderful memory from that time and we found hotels confused her, but she could remember where things like the bathroom and her bed was in the RV.

Thank you for sharing! As an aged mom, I'm envious of your Mom; thank you and your husband for giving her this experience!
