I know Mom doesn't have a lot of time in this world. At 100 1/2 it is to be expected. For the past 20 years she has been unhappy, negative, difficult, uncooperative. (well, she still is uncooperative) She has been in AL since Feb and the transition was difficult. But we are noticing she is finally accepting things and seems to have found a place in the world where she is relatively content and belongs. She has friends, and is even going to some activities. Thanks to the zoloft, and to the lovely people at AL, she seems more content and peaceful. That is such a relief for family to know she is not emotionally suffering. Maybe its the zoloft, maybe its her dementia at the point she lives only in the moment and can't keep her mind on anything long enough to stress over it. She will get her the new hearing aids this week and then her life will be so much better and family will also be calmer knowing she is not stressing and complaining constantly.
