I finally realized I couldn't do it alone.
I took the advice of someone from a local agency regarding my mom. It turned out I didn't even need a referral from her pcp, I was able to set the whole thing up myself! Thanks a million Land of Sky in Buncombe County North Carolina for helping me with this idea, which I was able to initiate. Now my mom can hopefully get the psychiatric care she needs before we move to the next step! Wow, this is quite the ride!
And now for my soapbox! We really do need more of an educational, supportive, on a dozen levels, effort in this regard with our government. Please let whoever know. Thanks, Melanie
