She is 84 and currently in an excellent assisted living community. She is falling frequently, to the point that they check in on her every half hour, and have moved a staff work station closer to her room. On top of this, she tends to be nocturnal. Sleeping all day and roaming at night.
I spoke with the head nurse and facility doctor today. They are recommending finding placement in a group home so that my mom can have a higher staff to resident ratio and more supervision. They did not feel a nursing home environment would be any better than her current situation.
In addition to her mobility issues, she has cognitive decline which is worsening. She is already not happy being where she is, and desperately wants to be in her house. That is not an option for many reasons.
I would appreciate hearing what experiences others can share.
