My mom was very lucid one morning I was visiting. She woke me up, dressed herself had make up on and wanted me to curl her hair. I was so excited to see her so together, so of course I got up and got the iron hot. My niece is not a professional caregiver but stays and takes care of mom. She came in and scolded my mom for being up so early and said you need to go back to bed now. Mom said "jen is going to curl my hair " and I said go back to bed me and mom are fine. She continued to scold us and then said in her sweetest voice"grandma if I give you a pain pill will you go back to bed? My mom hopped out of that chair and followed heather like an addicted crack head. I was so floored by what I just saw and thought you don't give an opiate to someone who isn't in pain. I am so upset about this, how many times has she done this? My mom slept on and off the entire 2 weeks I was there. Something doesn't feel right, what do I do? I live out of state and feel so helpless.
