My mother has been in an Assistant Living Facility since Feb. 2014. She still doesn't like it. They bring her pain pills every four hours, but don't say a word to her. No one talks to her, I told her you have to talk to them also. She has lost 21 lbs. since Feb. She isn't happy, but I can't take her back. She's so negative about everything. Would a Care Home with 4 to 8 residences be better? How are they compared to ALF with 50 people? I'm at my wits end. Do they just want their money and not communicate with the residences or just too busy? She does have dementia, can't remember from one minute to the next. But sure can remember when she was little. Word for word stories.
