I have been caring for my mother since her stroke 5 years ago; she had a second one Easter of 2016. She is max assist, as she cannot stand nor take care of her hygine. Sometimes, she needs help eating. Her dementia has been worsening greatly, to the point that it is becoming even more difficult for me and my part-time aide to care for her. I promised her that I would keep her at home as long as I can. I just don't know how much longer that will be. I have been looking into long term care so that I'm not faced with needing to make a sudden decision. Due to her conditions, she need both skilled and memory care. I have contacted a few places. Unfortunately, those who provide memory care state that they do not provide skilled care. I am at a loss as to what to do. Am I to simply ignore her mental/emotional needs brought on by her dementia in order to have her physical needs met? I am beyond frustrated. Suggestions and guidance will be appreciated.
