My Mom is losing it! She was hollering and yelling at night and when any of the staff at the nursing home would leave the room, she would scream or yell until someone came back. She could not be left alone and barely slept. Finally, the nursing home requested I approve sending her to an acute care hospital specifically for geriatric psychiatry. I agreed - she struggles with bi-polar and anxiety and has a Traumatic Brain Injury and dementia - she is 80. Along with her physical issues (including being blind) as well, she is a mess. She fought going - literally - and had to be restrained. During her 15 day stay, they adjusted her psychotropic drugs and put her on some new meds. She seemed to be responding well. She was released back to the nursing home with new med orders. She has been back a week and it is beginning all over again, but this time she is angry and horribly agitated - nothing is right and she is claiming abuse and a multitude of other things. I'm so afraid they will permanently request they send her back to a psychiatric facility permanently and from what I can see, they have every right too. What are my options? Do I have any? I have MPoA and she recently transitioned onto Medicaid after nearly 5 years of private pay to the nursing home.
