Mom said she took neuro-psych testing at nursing home.
I have permanent guardianship, health care proxy and POA for my mother. She's in a nursing home. She said she took neuro-psych testing and is was told she doesn't have dementia, and wants her driver's license back etc. I checked with the nursing home and indeed they did do neuro-psych testing on her - they never shared it with me (see above regarding my status). The guardianship does not allow her to drive. She has moderate dementia, alzh, poor insight, congestive heart failure, small vessel disease etc. Turns out she took the neuro-psych test on 5-22-14. The results show what we expect - moderate dementia etc. etc. etc. Poor judgement, insight, needs prompting for self-care, memory etc. My mother is telling me she can leave the facility any time she wants - but she is on an elopement watch. I have been really good about re-directing her. She irked me this evening and I ended our conversation and told her I had to go home. I really don't want to talk to her right now. Of course, she get fixated on "I have a conflict with my son regarding guardianship" although permanent guardianship was awarded by the court two months ago. I am exasperated. Sorry - it just upset me.
