Got another, WORSENING problem with Mom now. I go to the kitchen every morning to make the coffee and feed the cats. Well, lately I've got to put shoes on because, inevitably and increasingly, there's one or MORE broken dishes, drinking glasses, bowls, etc. And what I listed above WAS WHAT I GOT UP TO JUST THIS MORNING!!! The hell with what's been broken, but I FEAR for my Mom's SAFETY, right?!?
THEN, she's been increasingly wanting to go home, or go "somewhere" (but can never really verbalize WHERE she needs to go!) and has become MUCH MORE demanding insofar as wanting me to open the door so she can go out! Earlier this morning she became VERY ANGRY with me when I tried to explain to her why she couldn't go out! AND, just NOW, she came to me and said, quite adamantly, that she was leaving.... she was going HOME!!!
Needless to say, I'm VERY frightened that she may leave the house ON HER OWN and get lost!!!
With all due respect to those wanting to reply, please don't tell me she needs to be placed somewhere. We simply cannot afford it and, since we can't qualify for MediCaid for ANY assistance WHATSOEVER (which is a requirement in California), we're, NO, I AM on my own.
