Well, finally got Mom to sign an Assisted Living lease, did the assessments etc. Only agreed to try for a couple of months, but we felt that would do the trick. Family made plan to get furniture moved and everything set up.
But, life happened. To help discuss and plan move and get me a little respite, my adult daughter offerred to invite granny over to her house for a few hours after a family birthday party. Everyone wins, granny gets an outing, I get a break and a dinner with hubby. My Mom unfortunately later that afternoon missed the last step coming down stair with my daughter and took a hard fall. We came and got her took to ER and she has a broken bone in right hand, a broken cheekbone, and bruising all over face. They kept her in observation area at ER overnight, and sent us home in morning, with instructions to follow up in 2 weeks. Thankfully no surgery required.
But afternoons and evenings have been horrible. Last night she was practically hysterical telling me she had to go home, becuase of her child, who is 5. ( no 51), Could not break her out if it, not even talking to my sister multiple times or even calling a friend helped.
Shes argumentative, keeps pushing back on regular meds. Waked me up multiple times in the last few evenings talking about things and people not there. This is a significant change, she was always a little more confused in the evening, but not to this degree.
Add to this the cast is on dominant hand, and she is not supposed to blow nose (and a lot if crying going in right now with the confusion), its a mess.
Will this settle down, should I take her to doctor, maybe they missed something (she had CAT scan in ER)?
