Dementia mother who is being asked to leave her studio apartment at an Independent Living Community. Classified her as inappropriate behavior.
This week mom flushed something down the toilet at the Sr. Home two times and blocked the toilet. They are calling her severe dementia. She only gets $948.00 in SSI. but does have medicaid. I can't find her a place to go to. She isn't listed as skilled nursing. Still tends to herself. All the places are private care. The Dept. of aging wants to bring someone to be with her but the Retirment Home basiclly wants her out. No one will take her little bit of money. I still work 3 days a week. I have a pounding headache right now after getting off the phone with the director of the home. He was so rude to me. A few yrs back, a previous director had set mom up with a special deal for her to stay when her funds ran out. $1,000.00 a mo. and I take care of the apt. I had all this in writing too. Now the new guy says its my responsibility to find a place more suitable for her. Problem is they are private pay. Yes she has no memory recall, but is able to tend to herself. Where do I go from here. Cindy
