My mom called me on her Facebook Portal tonight. She was very confused, the light was off in her room, although it was still sone light through windows it was pretty dark, and she kept standing and just pointing to things around the room. She wouldnt sit down no matter how much I asked her to. Why? Its dangerous.
So I contacted the front desk, and told them to have an aide check on her as she needed help. Because by that time, she has knelt down on floor and couldn't get up, and said she was hurting
So the aide came in and turned on her light, and helped her up, and said she would call me back, after she got her settled. And disconnected me.
So the aide calls back in 15 minutes on the video Portal, and says that mom didnt want change for bed yet, and was still upset asking about parents, and left the room. At least mom was seated in her recliner, but she was vastly more confused than normal.
She just kept saying I'm so scared, but when I said in sorry to hear that, and tried to redirect, it just didnt work, Even added my sister to call, and her young grandkids said hi, she just kept saying it.
So I asked what are you scared of? And she just points says bathroom door, or bed, and my purse is on the table. And I guess I can't call my parents. Tried telling her she was in a safe place. Tried asking how can I help.
Lately shes been having more trouble with words, doing a lot of slurring.
But this was heartbreaking. She was teary, and so confused and scared and I just couldn't help.
