So for those interested in how things may progress or not progress in the pursuit to be a guardian of a parent with dementia, here are our recent events. Our first hearing was postponed because mom claimed she never got her papers in the mail from the lawyer. Our second hearing stopped and bound over for trial because mom contested the hearing. She actually didn't contest on her own, she was just so confused I think the judge came to the conclusion it was best not to proceed. In the meantime we were not given a chance to speak at all, and no consideration was given to mom living alone or her safety. Now we wait, and think about if we want a trial. We have taken a step back and mom is battling her demons on her own. She calls multiple times a day with her delusions and hallucinations, but told the judge she doesn't want us or need us in her home. I am learning how not to respond to each of these calls, as so far they have not been emergencies. Neighbors called the police and they checked on her once recently. I used to respond or have someone respond to every problem. We call each day, and one of us would stop in daily, but we have stopped. We plan to stop in once or twice a week. Do we even need guardianship? I am beginning to question this. I want it to provide safety for her. Do I need Conservatorship? I want it to protect her accounts and make sure there is money for her care in the future, and to protect her from fraud and becoming a victim. But do I really need this? Is it worth fighting for. I am so very tired.
