Nobody I’ve ever encountered (except me) “wanted” to enter residential care, but my mother loved and was loved by every caregiver she had in her 5 years in SNL care.
My present loved one was not able to stay safely in her life long home, and has adjusted reasonably well in AL.
At 96, with multiple issues, it’s time to take charge. AlvaDeer’s recommendations are sound. Follow them with confidence.
She's not in denial, she really believes she's fine. To keep you and her safe, she needs a new "home". If you're concerned about relinquishing your caring for her by placing her in a care facility, consider that by doing so you ARE taking care of her. She will be safer, have her meds managed, meals provided, and 24/7 observation by a trained staff while still allowing her some independence.
Good luck, vickyl.
