My almost 78 year old mother is in an AL about 2 hours from me and I used to visit every other week. It's a great facility, and has been on lockdown since early March due to COVID precautions with no visitors even outside. Residents spend a lot of time alone as meals are delivered and activities have been cancelled. There is still a nurse and CNA and staff around so some interaction, and residents can get out and about with masks to some extent. But definitely a change in schedule and environment and causing a lot of confusion. My mom has been almost delusional since this started and especially in the afternoons "sundowning". She had been developing dementia and personality disorders, but is SO much worse. I am wondering if anyone else has this issue? She has never been pleasant, but gotten much much worse. She is rude to the staff and to me as well. She has never really made any friends there and pushed away most other relatives so it's just me. They have had to order a PRN shot of Ativan for extreme days, as earlier this week when she called the police. This is a gated and continuing care community with an excellent reputation. She has been there almost 3 years so far. She calls many times per day. I just wonder if this will reverse once I am able to visit? She has a history of temporary delusions with a trigger such as surgery. Thankfully I have full POA. Thank you!!
