This journey started Jan 2015 when our moms partner passed away. She was diabetic prior to this date but was a happy go lucky woman. She was living on her own and running her own business. For a few months after her partners passing she appeared fine. My sister and I would visit her on weekends. In April of that year she went to visit her family. Then in June I got a call from her with slurred speech at 2am. I called someone that I knew was nearer and asked them to kick down the door if they had to while I got there. That scare was averted with insulin and my sister and I set up a meal plan and had someone come over to check her sugar levels for months we continued seeing her and all was being complied with. Then around October work got more hectic and our visits were even less frequent. Then Dec 8th I get a call from a neighbor that she is refusing to eat, soiling the bed and just in tears. I rush to see her and without hesitation bring her to our place. We went to 6 different doctors and they all said she was depressed, which I'm sure she was but on dec 21st we took her to the emergency room after she woke up at 2am fell on our bathroom floor and then wanted to sleep on the bathroom floor. We were met with a nurse that said "well her vitals are fine and she is answering all questions" we had to fight for further testing. Which showed signs of an old stroke. She went to the hospital and was discharged within 3 days . She was back to her old self. But we weren't letting her live alone. She fought us, but finally agreed to stay with us. Then June 2016 comes around and she has a seizure. Her cognitive level declines after this episode. I burn through my savings for an in home care taker while at work. After 3 months she is back to being able to be slightly independent. The dec 16 she has another seizure. This one scares her so much she's scared to be home alone and I can't afford to pay for care out of pocket. So I take 2 months off. She's fine again and I go back to work. End of march 2017 another seizure this time a grand mal. She gets suicidal after this one. We get her help and she is put on mood stabilizers again within months she is okay again and even started going out with her girlfriends and being a bit more independent. Then June 12th, 2017 she had another stroke this time her left side became imobile. I have no more savings to pay for care. I can't take anymore time off work and I can't quit my job. I still have to afford my rent and our living expenses. At the hospital they took my concerns and decided nursing care would be the best option for rehab. She has made progress and is able to use a walker once helped up. The nursing facility wants to discharge. The social worker told me it's my duty to care for my mom and basically told me I don't care about her when I said I could not care for her at home. She is cognitively well and she even doesn't want to come to my place not to mention the fact that I live on a second story apartment and she can't even go up one step. I'm told thier MIGhT be in home care but that it will take time to set up and that I have to take her home in the meantime. This doesn't sound right to me. Anyone else get pressured to take a loved one out of a care facility before they were ready.
