At the age of 83 Mom sold her house after living alone for many years. During the wait for a subsidized apt, she spent most of her time with my husband and I. From approx Oct to April she spent 80% of the time with me. Once settled in her apt., her personality changed. Depression, followed by a suicide attempt. Fast forward 6 mo. and she needed to go to assisted living. Once in AL it was as though she totally gave up and wants to die. Doesn’t put any effort into trying to remember events and finds no joy or happiness in living. This all escalated in a 2 1/2 yr period. It’s really hard trying to call and keep in touch since conversation is too much of an effort. Myself and my sibs are finding it hard to engage when she makes no effort.
