Our mom is in an MC facility about 30 miles outside of our metro area. We are, for most part, happy with care, but notice there is a distinct lack of communication between clinical and admin. We are very happy with clinical care.
I think my mom has progressed to a different stage of Alzheimer's. Is it common or not to want to be informed of that? I did not recognize her yesterday at first. The good...she was out in common area instead of her room. The bad or maybe not bad per se, but giving me consternation, was her appearance. And abilities. She can't stand unaided. Can't walk. On diapers now. As opposed to a month ago.
What bothers me the most is I did not recognize her. She was so out of it. Her hair is much longer but she wants it so. I would give anything to have long hair, says she. She wants a braid I think.
She wanted us to see a garden that exists nowhere there. So going back in time prob.
How do you handle these transitions when they are so dramatic? This is hard. Thank you in advance.
