I don't know if your Mom has Dementia/Alz.. My Mom does and it makes my heart so sad every time she brings up wanting to move back to her home. I tell her someone else is living there (renting) and we can revisit that subject at a later time. Sometimes I say we can talk about the pros and cons tomorrow. Tomorrow comes and she has totally forgotten yesterdays conversation. Some things are better forgotten. However, no matter what...our Moms, as long as they remember anything, will want to move back to where things were good and they could do as they wanted and enjoyed life. I am compassionate about the subject and I do tell her I understand.
One more thing...when we have family gatherings, I bring her and her husband over early, so she can help me with the meal or whatever she wants to help with.
Best of luck to you. I know how tough this is.
