I just admitted my mom in an Alzheimer's unit in a nursing home. My mom is still walking and alot of them are in wheelchairs and not very coherent. The staff said she was doing great and already had made friends. Today was my first visit after her being there only a week. When she saw me she said, I want to go home. She has lived with me for the last 2 years. I was upset because she did not have a bra on and they said it must be in the wash. She is not incontinent and she had a pull up on. She didn't carry on any conversation with me, she just wanted to go. She kept saying she wanted to go see her mom. She was not happy, but seemed mad. I feel like I am responsible for her happiness, but you are the only one who can make you happy. She was getting very hard to handle and not in reality. She fights them to get a shower, but was fighting me at home. Not eating much at nursing home, but would not eat much for me either. She was starting to not want to stay at my house, but wanted to go home. She has only been in a week. It seemed like when she saw me it upset her more. Im wondering if they do adjust or just keep wanting to go home. So very sad and upsetting to see her in this state, but she was only pacing and tearing magazines at my house. One minute she said she was having fun and then the next saying I hate these people. Hard to figure out a demented mind.
