Would moving my mother to a nursing home closer to us after my dad's death make things worse?
Would it give my mom a set-back to move her from the nursing home they were in together? Dad died two weeks ago,mom has alheimers She is 60 miles away. We went to see them everyday but this is unrealistic when we have a nice nursing home within 10 minutes of us. My sister thinks we should leave her alone even though we know no one in that town. It was an "authority kick" was the only reason they ever were placed there. Now my sister thinks we would set her back to move her close to us.Being practical, no one can keep driving that far everyday especially back roads and no phone service. Would moving her really "shut her down" or can an alheimers patient adjust. She really does not concept dad has died even though we told her. Her mind just keeps wandering where he is. Are we making things worse to move her closer? Very Concerned!
