Am I doing the right thing for my mom?
My mom she is 82 with several health issues including, Pacemaker, pulmonary fibrosis, high blood pressure, familiar tremors and short term memory. She was C-scanned for any other underlying memory issues (or so I was told) and only found an old minor stroke which may account for her memory issues. Trying to sum it up quickly she still drives a few blocks but has got lost 4 times now that I know about recently had a growth removed from her face needs daily changing so I moved her in my home and take her back to her house to check on things. She can not remember things or days and we all see it. She keeps asking when she can go home and why won't I let her stay by herself. I am trying to do the right thing keeping her with us and tell her I am worried about her going back home on her own and being able to take care of herself as she doesn't even microwave a dinner for herself any more. I need a professional to talk with the details to be sure I am doing the right thing. My husband, two grown daughters and two teenagers see what she is doing and say I am doing the right thing for her. I can't find the resources to talk to a professional to assure me I am handling it all correctly. Where can I find one that won't cost an arm and a leg?
