My 76 year old mother had a total hip replacement Tuesday. Her physical health is fine and doing well with PT, but she is very confused. This has happened during 2 other hospital stays. The worst part is she turns on me - her only support. She saw "confusion " on the hospital room board and is convinced I wrote it. I am hopeful this will resolve when she is discharged, but her cognitive abilities are continuing to go down. She is very difficult- we tried 4 different home health agencies before AL. Thankful for an overall good AL where she will be able to go to skilled nursing for rehab. Hoping familiar faces and surroundings will help. Any suggestions to stay sane when the person you are trying to help is against you? I have learned so much from all your posts!
