You might remember my story. I got mom from India to stay with me for 4 months. She's in the very early stages of dementia- very forgetful but physically ok. During these 4 months, she was completely dependent on me, wouldn't watch movies or do any activity unless I was with her. I did take her to our community celebrations, meeting relatives but I cannot leave her alone and take a mental break...she gets restless and starts asking for me.
I was so relieved to take her back to her senior center housing last month.
The senior center is not suited for dementia patients. For now, mom is being helped by neighbors and a night-time aide. I can see the writing on the wall that I will have to bring her back and start the green card process for her. ( My relatives in India have said it's my responsibility and I know truly it is...)
How do I just accept this situation? I'm trying to postpone the green card as much as I can - I can take mom's dependency only in small doses. How can I be mentally strong to deal with this situation?
