My mother has been in assisted living for nearly two months now and says she'll never forgive me for taking her out of her home. She is in mid stage and her short term memory is gone. When I visit her, all she says is she wants to go home over and over. She has no idea why she's there. Any attempts at redirecting her are futile. She is totallly self absorbed, won't ask about the family, she just repeats that she wants tto go home. I don't even want to visit her because they aren't visits at all, there is no conversation. Is this normal and how do i handle this? After 5 minutes I'm ready to leave and usually do. She also does this with other visitors and the staff.
