So mom has PSP and is in a nursing home. She is a very nasty, manipulative, and just plain mean to me every time I go to see her. I had to stop bring my kids there because they are getting resentful of her because of her treatment towards me. I spoke to the social worker at the NH and told her I can not take her behavior and treatment anymore (she even treats the staff the same way) The social worker said they will contact psych and review her meds as she has many symptoms of schizophrenia although we know the behavior is due to the PSP.
Anyways, the social worker said I should visit maybe once a week and maybe she will be more appreciative of our visits, but i cant help feeling now I have abandoned her in a NH and dont even visit. Not sure how to deal with the behavior and if not visiting very often will help.
Has anyone ever had to deal with this? Am I doing the right thing? Today will be 1 week since my last visit and im feeling VERY guilty.
