Got a call from the NH at 9 p.m. They found my mother on the floor (again). She has a bed alarm but once it goes off, by the time staff come running she's on the floor. No harm done but she's very confused and upset. She insists her mother died today. In her 80's grandma dropped dead of a massive stroke in the 70s. Although my mother likes her room door closed, staff will keep it open tonight so they can watch her.
I'll go visit first thing tomorrow. Do I tell her grandma passed away long ago or do I go along with it and commiserate? She's deteriorating so rapidly and nuttier than squirrel poop these days. I'm thinking it's best to agree and commiserate, however she likely will have forgotten all about it by tomorrow. What are your thoughts please
