My Mom’s dementia has geared up to the point that she’s calling the police on the apartment manager whom she thinks has stolen her blood pressure meds, which she is taking in excess of the dosage, her meals in wheels, legal paperwork, etc. She will not pay her rent anymore because she claims she is rent free. I am on her checking acct so I pay it. The other day the manager told me I need to get a handle on her.
I had to hire a lawyer and it goes before the judge Tuesday the 4th. They will pick her up and take her to the ER where there is a geriatric psych ward to be evaluated and hold her for a couple of weeks medicating her. I’m so sad but cannot do anything else as she refuses to let me handle her medications and is taking it like candy.
Problem is I start a new job on Tuesday, I have asked if I could start Wednesday and they said yes. I don’t know how I’m going to shuffle my new position but I have to work. I have a house note and such.
If the judge finds her incompetent he will allow me guardianship and she will go to a nursing home after.
I won’t be able to see her every single day due to my job
The guilt is excruciating. Please help me deal with this.
Thank you in advance.
