I’m curious to hear others’ experiences of having their loved ones evaluated for dementia in a hospital setting. My 97-year-old mother was admitted on Friday. Just 2+ days into this and I’m ready to yank her out of this place and just let her go home. It’s like a scene from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and my mother is scared. I’m afraid this environment will make her worse than she is! Has anyone had a GOOD experience having a hospital eval done? How many days was your loved one there? The whole situation has just been abysmal for us! In the ER, one clinician told us it would be a “short” 7-10 day visit (to which I replied “short? 7-10 days is an ETERNITY to a 97-year-old!), another told us it would be 7-14 days! We were given no say in where she would go, no choices, no time to do any research. Once she was in the hospital, I read that it could be a 12-14 day stay!! No way! Not leaving my mother in this hell hole for that long! Anyway, thanks for your responses.
