Mom with dementia attended social daycare 6 days a week. She broke her shoulder, went from hospital, to rehab and seems to need to be in a facility. Her dementia has worsened while there and her behavior is erratic. I know she needed a higher level of care, but I feel so guilty packing up her apartment and getting rid of her things. Not that she could participate, but if feels like such a betrayal...Mom lives (lived) in rent control apartment. If I do not send in her renewal papers this week, she will no longer qualify and I will have to move her out by the end of the month, but I am struggling with the idea that if I do this I will regret it in the future. I think all of us with dementia parents worry that they are going to come to their senses and flip out because of all the choices we have had to make for them. She keeps asking "when am I going home", and tonight was screaming at me about going home so I know there is no reasoning with her as she does not understand why she is there, but like I said, I wonder if she was "home" would her behavior normalize...and the pragmatic side of me knows the answer but the guilty daughter side feels like this is one more way I am remiss in her care. She senses that she has been there awhile, but has no sense of time, but is not "acclimating" like I am told most patients do, so that makes me continue to wonder what the best plan is for her.
