My mother who is 89, 90 in Sept is suffering with memory loss and beginning dementia. I’ve tried to tell her it’s time for AL but she is very stubborn and thinks it’s a nursing home and refuses to even visit to see for herself. She says she doesn’t want to leave her house, which she lives by herself. She does forget things that she has done for years and says she just started doing it. For instance, like opening up the garage door (which is attached). I had to write a note with directions how to do it in the morning. She does do it. But then there are other times where she’ll have anxiety and she’ll call me and I have to talk with her for a little bit till she settles herself down. It’s very difficult for me being the only child, my older sister passed 9 yrs ago from cancer. She does remember old memories it’s more of the short term memory that she’s losing. I would just like to see her in assisted living where there are other people for her to talk to and I believe she’d be more happy there. But she refuses to even visit. I do go see her everyday to give her her medicine. Just trying to figure things out. It’s so difficult.
