I had a nervous breakdown last week and now my brother will took Mom for a couple of weeks. But he doesn't want her fulltime and I can't take her back. My marriage is on the brink of divorce. Mom broke her hip 2 yrs ago and now she needs another hip replacement, but she said she will not go thru that again. She is 90, with dementia. She is livid sometimes. Can dress herself, shower w/help and pull her bed covers up. She won't use her walker which she needs. Holds on to whatever is close. I do not know where to put her. Assistant living or maybe a board and care home. Does the doctor have to put her in a nursing home? Or can we do it? Does anyone know how this works? I just can't keep her anymore, but I feel so guilty moving her out. Thanks for any help you can give me. Bless you and this website.
