My aunt was adjusting well until a new resident moved in next door to her. At first, my aunt complained about allergies to the woman's therapy dog. Now, they are "best friends" and the dog sits between them in the lobby. The new resident, I am told, is determined to go home, and she has planted the idea in my aunt's head that they can make this happen. They spend all day plotting about who could pick them up, how they could leave and even the possibility of living together. My aunt has called former care providers, DSS and who knows who else, asking that someone come get her because she's being "held against her will." In reality, she has been told by her doctors that it's not safe for her to live alone. She's from a rural area, doesn't drive, has been told not to cook, has hallucinations and called 911 many times while at home to report non-existent intruders, can no longer manage her finances, and has difficulty with medication management. She makes daily threats to change her POA, tells anyone who will listen that she's "going home today" but she is completely incapable of living alone. The new resident fuels this behavior, and my aunt, who never uttered a curse word, has begun to pick up the filthy vocabulary of her new friend. Is there any recourse with the facility for accepting this new resident who is such a bad influence? I've been told the woman was asked to leave her previous facility for similar behavior. Prior to the new resident's arrival, my aunt, while reflective about home, was starting to acclimate to her new surroundings. Any thoughts?
