Mom, who has Parkinson disease and dementia, has been doing this for some time now about not wanting anyone that comes and visit her to leave. She said that she does not like being alone and we moved her into assistant living . Well, she fell several times and ended up in the emergency room also. The doctor said she needed to be in Rehab to see if she could still live in Assistant living, which he told us that he really did not think so. She fell there as well and the Rehab said there was no way that Mom could stay by herself anymore and told us that she really needed to be in the Alzheimer's/dementia unit so that she could be watched more closely.
How do we handle or does anyone have any suggestions on how to help her see that everyone has to go home eventually. She told me yesterday that she was going to get sick if I leave and said that I will be better off without her if she died. She's a real stinker. Thanks
