I need help, I got my Mom out of assisted living around 2 or 3 weeks ago.
There are three caregivers taking care of her, (24 hour care) but she is rude to them and tells them that she is, "THE BOSS!" she is rude, she yells, My Dad was always the Boss and I think when he passed she became HIM! She is talking negative constantly. I am in a different state and am trying to run things from here. I am only a two hour plane trip away so in an emergency I could fly down there to see her. I am not sure if part of this problem is the agency, we are paying them 7,500 a month, Two of the first caregivers don't really want to work with her anymore and one sort of got let go/quit.
She told her caregiver tonight that she doesn't care what the coordinator says, she is the BOSS and they will do as she says., she'll just fire them all and hire someone from the street.
She has MS and has to be lifted, she can only use one arm now. She still is sharp in the mind but is dilusional at times.
They are coming to meet with her Monday, I think if she doesn't straighten up and follow the rules they are going to drop her.
My only option is another agency, I will try one more but after that whe will have ot go back into assisted living, where she stayed for a month.
She is being such a pain in the ass. My son is 19 he will be flying down this week to stay with her for the summer, I hope this helps, he was close to her when he was little and wants to go down there to be with her...
Any advice would be appreciated!
