She has advanced dementia and is VERY needy. She has lot of anxiety, some hallucinations, and is very confused. She cries a lot of the day. “I miss my mother but she’s passed away.” “There’s people that are going to hurt me. Let’s go.” "I’m having some real problems.” These are all things she says. I know they’re pretty typical. So far she’s been clingy with staff and other residents.
I wanted to see what other people thought of being advised to not visit for two months. The head nurse said it might be sooner but that they would continue to update me and let me know when they thought it would be good time to start regular visits. They obviously said I could do whatever I want, but this is what they recommend. I understand there’s a need for Mom to adjust, but it seems really long. Thoughts?
