Nursing homes....I can't find ONE GOOD ONE!!
Mom is now in the 5th yes.....5th nursing home in 6 years. ALL of them neglected her and THIS ONE IS TOO. SHe's been there since this past March. I got there at 7 pm and she reeked of urine so, I took her to her room to work on her feet as usual and her SOCKS and LEATHER shoes were SOAKING WET....they were DRENCHED in urine..her LEGS, HER PANTS...all SOAKING wet. I could WRING the urine out of them. Her pamper weighed FIVE POUNDS it was SO FULL OF URINE. I"M LIVID. and SICK AND TIRED OF THIS. I looked all over the NH for an aide or nurse or SOMEBODY...anybody????? Finally found a med aid and told her what shape mom was in when I arrived. I spent 50 minutes in the bathroom with her trying to get the soaking wet clothes OFF and of course she started DIGGING POOP out of her butt again and I had to tell her..we don't DIG, we GRUNT it out. OMG...after one entire roll of toilet paper and about 30 wet wipes, I finally got her POOP out and her cleaned up...BUT her bed was wet.....so, I took the sheets off so SOMEBODY may just happen by and NOTICE something. SHe had NO paper towels, no wash clothes, only one pair of pants in her closet (I took her their with 15 pairs), ONE pair of socks.....took her their with 25 pairs..DOES IT EVER END????? I'm LIVID!!!!!!!! Now, she has NO SHOES to wear because her last good leather pair I bought her is RUINED with soaked urine from days of it. I'm going to have to move her back in with me....I JUST KNOW IT. And, I have PTSD and Panic Disorder..she argues with me and won't listen when I tell her NOT to turn stove on or NOT to open front door when it's 15 degrees out...HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't stand the thought of leaving her there but I know she drives me nutts when she lives with me. Siblings don't care at all. They are NO HELP.
