Need a little support here. In the morning I'm taking my mom to an assisted living facility. She has no idea. I had to trick her because she'd never go willingly. She is 84 with mid stage Alzheimer's, short term memory gone, forgets to eat and sits on her couch all day doing nothing. She's lost 15 pounds recently because she's not eating Sometimes she stares at the floor for hours. This is no life for her. She says she's bored and ready to die.
I've tried so many times to talk her about assisted living but she shuts me out and refused to discuss it. All she has is her house and her cat and I feel so guilty I almost cancelled the whole thing. Please reassure me I'm doing the right thing. The stress over this is overwhelming. I'm an only child and the only one who can make this decision.
