My mom has been moved from an assisted living home to a nursing home, how do I move her things into her room without her freaking out?
Mom has been in assisted living for 1 1/2 years and recently broke her left foot in 2 places---Last year before she moved here from NJ she broke her other foot--she has had various falls in the past several years. She also has dementia Lvl 4-5 and has been diagnosed as physchotic for which she is taking medication for also among other problems diabetes etc. She is very demanding , unreasonable and only thinks of her self-this is nothing new and she has been this way her entire life---as he always said "children are to be seen and not heard"----She's never had any friends and got divorced at 50 and lived alone in a studio apt for 35 years! A virtual recluse!! Anyway, I have been her lifeline all her life---but now I am her enemy, too! She is just a nasty nasty person----Now the retirement home wants to keep her in nursing because of incontenence dementia and refusing to go to therapy for her foot. I have to close her apartment because I can't afford that and pay for nursing too! When I move some of her furniture to her nursing room she is going to freak out as she thinks she's going back to her apt in assisted living.... i am actually sick to my stomach about how she is going to react -she has never been resonable about anything and I suspect she has had mental issues her entire life from what I hear from her ex-sister in law--I have been depressed and upset ever since she moved here----I really don't want to face this--- Any sugestions?
