Mom is 95 years old. Her memory has been slipping for years. She has been in assisted living for 2.5 years. She has macular degeneration and it is getting worse. She has fallen many times in the last 6 months, some due to eyesight. Her mood is worse since they have been restricted to their apartments because of COVID. She thinks people take stuff from her room, eat her snacks and watch her tv at midnight. She has accused me of stealing her credit card, checkbook, etc. I am the only daughter living close by and her main caretaker for everything that the community does not provide.
The director and nurse at assisted living is pushing us to move Mom to Memory Care at the same facility. Her new room is tiny and I think she would hate it. She has good days where she is lucid and happy.
How do you know it is time to move someone to memory care from assisted living? Has anyone else had to do this? Any tips, suggestions. I am so sad. She does not know yet. Thank you in advance.
