What do I do about my grandmother's strange behavior after her stroke?
My grandmother came home six days ago from SNF after having a stroke due to afib. She is NOT the woman she was the morning of the stroke. She is at times beligirant, paranoid, and does very odd things. Tonight she picked up a medication bottle and tried to use it as a deodorant stick. She is very confused about her finances and claims she had credit cards she never had, etc. She spends a lot of time looking through her wallet and sleeps about 20 hours a day. I have POA only if two physicians certify she is incapable of making her own medical and financial decisions. They both agree she can't make medical decisions, yet one says she should be able to handle her own finances. She performed well in his office. With all due respect to him, he saw her for thirty minutes and I've known her my entire life. She is progressively different for the worse.
