A move from AL to hospital to Adult Family Home has been hard on Mom. I posted recently about my mom having to go to the hospital with acute onset heart failure. https://www.agingcare.com/questions/mom-has-developed-breathing-problems-and-edema-and-will-be-seeing-the-doctor-tomorrow-466525.htm?orderby=oldest
She was doing okay in assisted living. They were very good to her. But her dementia was increasing. Then her heart failure required a 7 day stay in the hospital, where sundowning started getting bad. Then because we felt the AL couldn't give her the necessary level of care, we moved her from the hospital to a great Adult Family Home. Add in a urinary tract infection (caught by the AFH) and my poor Mom is so confused and her usually sweet self is yelling and hitting and calling the police.
Thanks to all the reading here, I know this is unsurprising. It is still so hard. The AFH is GREAT and have a psychiatrist on call who will see Mom tomorrow and possibly prescribe some medication that can help her be more calm and SLEEP (which she isn't doing either).
I'm hoping that she will adjust soon and learn to trust her new caretakers, who are taking this all in stride. In the meantime I hate seeing my dear Mom so unhappy.
