Grandma is 87. I live overseas. She has no family left in California. So I'm the only person that calls and checks on her. She forgets that I'm now 36 and argues with nurse on a daily message . They call me which is around 3:30am my time and ask me to calm her down. I'm happy to help but are they meant to call me everyday when her confusion gets bad? I'm usually then on the phone with her for 45 mins to 1 hrs. She will argue and argue until she gets tired and gives up. I tried to speak to the administrator for advice on how to proceed from here. She made a comment that they need the bed anyways as she is Medi-cal patient and if she doesn’t want to stay there then the bed can be used for someone else. I'm so confused. Grandma has no family there. She can’t live on her own either. I'm constantly worried and scared that the NH will discharge her or send her to the hospital as the administrator mentioned that.
I can’t even fly there right now due to Corvid. Feeling so helpless.
