My mom is getting out of rehab soon from a recent hospital visit from getting sick. Prior to that hospital visit, she was falling all the time which prompted a 24/7 care service which we had for several months. She has Alzheimer's diagnosis about 1 1/2 year ago and denies her illness, rather won't accept it, and any of the physical alignments (Parkinson, drop foot, inability to walk, spinal stensois, degenerate disc's, PAD and coronary artery, chronic UTI's) .
She is a very stubborn woman and it's either her way or the highway. However, she does not know the care services are private pay, had to tell her the government was paying for it (it was the only way she would accept caregivers).
Met with an Nation Wide 24/7 care agency regarding the care services and I mentioned all the troubles we had with previously with caretakers, at the home. The person (owner & director of nation wide agency franchase) met my mom in rehab and my mom was extremely angry cause she just wanted to be discharged immediately.
Today I contacted the agency for my mom's assessment and hire for 24/7 care, but was told our agency isn't a fit your mom. Further explanation from agency stated that my mom and I are not on the same "page" for caregiving.
My mom thinks she can do for herself, but in reality she can't and hasn't really accepted any of her limitations or aging.
My mom doesn't think she requires 24/7 care but I do for her own safety and health. What's your feedback on an care taking agency who tells you your not a "good fit" for their services.. What a joke... now scrambling to find another agency.
I think I might have mentioned too much about other caretakers in a negative way.
