My mom has parkinsons along with other health and mental issues. She's 69. Since January she's had 3 different episodes of acute altered mental status. 1st was a TIA. 2nd UTI after being home for 2 days from rehab. 3rd was 3 days home and they believe she has CDIFF but not sure what caused this latest episode and it was the worst of the 3. My question is what is causing the episodes and will they stop or will she come back from them and be able to return home again? I'm worried I won't be able to care of her safely anymore and we are not ready for that. I know she wants to be home and realizes things are not right. Just wondering what else could be causing these episodes or is it just the infections & TIA.
Anyone with experience in this I'd love to hear your story. Any words of wisdom or encouragement is helpful.
