Mom is 94 and wants to go to the hospital for every tiny thing. There have been so many false alarms that we stopped being concerned about it. But at that age we are scared that we may not recognize the real thing from the fake one. With Covid -19, we cant go in with her. We just have to drop her off at the ER. I worry that she will get sick being around the Hospital so much. She doesn't care about Covid -19 . She is more important than it is.
Constantly wanting something from the Store, or fast food take out, insists on seeing the Dr in person , no zoom visits.
Today she called a taxi and went to the ER on her own. My husband and I were both home and available. I was in the kitchen when I heard the front door open and close. At the same time my husband was coming in the back door, so I was surprised to see him because I thought it was him at the front. Then it hit me. So, I told him to run and check the front. Sure enough she was getting into a cab. He got there just in time to ask where she was going. She answered "The Hospital". When he ask why, she replied "It doesn't matter" What is that supposed to mean? Should we talk to her Dr about some other form of treatment for her or ourselves?
