Assisted Living residences vary , look for the options. Mom is in one that has staff look in on her every few hours and she has to sign in and out. This program gives her meds and reminds her of dinner time. A person has to have Power of Attorney which does not allow the resident to just leave on their own.Some days mom is mad at me for everything(the doctor took the driving priviledges away) but I can just hug her and say good-bye if it is too much! Mom praises the siblings who are farther away and not as involved but I know i did the best for her and she is in lovely place with her own things. you just have to keep positive and know you are doing the best you can.
