My mother is in moderate to late stage Alzheimer's. She has been receiving in-home care through BrightStar for a year and a half. Her usual aide that she had for about a year, left the company and since then, a variety of aides have come and gone and many times there are 2-3 aides coming within a week. My mom has always given some of the aides a hard time. She wants me to do all of the caregiving which I and my brother can't because we have to go to work. As time passes and the disease progresses, this is getting worse. Recently, a new aide started caring for her. My mother has developed a delusion that this woman is trying to take over her family and trying to get money (which we don't have any money or assets). She believes the aide is harmful to her. The aide does her job pretty well. She is experienced and I see no signs of her abusing my mother. I called BrightStar last night after a particularly hard day with my mother and told them how this isn't working out, hoping they would send someone new this morning even though I like the aide. They said they would talk to the aide and get back to me but didn't and the same aide came today. I feel sorry for her because she can't really even stay in my mother's room and my mother rejects her caregiving. The aide is currently just trying to find things around the house to do to be occupied and keeping her caregiving with my mother to a minimum. The problem is that I'm not even sure if a new aide would help. She has been rejecting of aides before although not always as bad as this. I don't know if I should just find a nursing home for her or try to manage the situation at home. If she goes into a nursing home, I don't want her placed somewhere far away because I need to be able to see her pretty regularly because I know she is very frightened about what is happening to her and I don't want her left somewhere alone with strangers most of the time struggling with this. Is there anyway to get someone like my mother to be more accommodating to aides? I live with her as does my brother and the stress from this is taking it's toll.
