These past few months have been so difficult, with my mom in and out of hospitals and rehab facilities for a stubborn UTI. Now it's looking like she may have Parkinson's as well; she can't walk or do much of anything for herself.
I decided to bring her home and hire 24-hour care for a few weeks to attempt to get rid of her UTI, while researching a longterm ALF or nursing home for her ... but while home she is refusing to eat (max 300 calories a day is all I can get in her), barely drinking water, and now yelling at the caretakers I've hired.
I understand she's confused from UTI, and rigid because of Parkinson's, but I can't help her if she refuses me nutrition and water. I feel I am losing a battle to bring her back to health...
What are my options with her? What care facility will accept someone like this and give them proper care? I'm scared.
