How can I tell may mother with dementia that she is not going home?
Mom has been in an Assisted Living center for 5 weeks. Just when I think she has accepted being there, she starts begging to go home again. I hate that she wakes up everyday thinking that she is ready to go home. How do I handle this? Some days she is quite lucid and other days not so much. Her doctor has said she cannot live alone, but she says she'll find someone to stay with her (which she won't be able to do). She believes that people will stay with her just because they like her. She has no understanding of other's jobs and lives...only hers.
