We recently forced my 90-year-old mother to move into assisted living. She had been living alone, but could not take care of her self and even forgot where she lived. Now she is angry and upset about being taken from her home.
My mom thought she could care for herself and could continue to live alone. However her dementia had progressed beyond that possibilty. We basically tricked into going to an assisted living facility close to my sister. I live in Tennessee and she lives in California. It has been 2 weeks and she is angry and obsessed about being taken, unwillingly, from her home. These last 3 years I have begged her to come and live with me.....or let us find a facility in California that she liked. She would hear nothing of it. We made the decision for her and she is furious. Although see regularly forgot where she lived before this move....she has not forgotten that she was forced to move!!!! She continues to be confused about most other things.
Any advice or words of wisdom? Thank you
