Logistics matter less than son’s loving offer

Dying parent doesn't want to be a burden by moving in with son who lives far away from medical services.

Dear Carolyn: I have Stage 4 cancer and don’t have long to live. My son and his family have invited me to live with them. I would like this as I live alone.

The problem is, they live about an hour and a half away from where my medical services are. The area is remote and doesn’t offer much in the way of medical help.

When I become too ill to drive, I will be relying on them. I don’t want to be a burden.
