Am I doing the right thing by not answering her calls (10 times yesterday)? The RN says its better not to contact her for the first several days, so that she will learn to depend on the staff instead of me, but I feel horribly guilty! I did talk to her yesterday morning, she seemed much calmer, but was still asking when I was coming to get her. I just didn't answer her calls for the rest of the day yesterday. She hasn't called today yet, I'm praying that is a good sign. Somebody with experience tell me what you think. She's 82 with vascular dementia. She has been living right behind me in a tiny house, but I just can't let her be by herself any longer, and she is resistant to having in-home care. Tried that before, and she just wouldn't answer the door to let them in. She thinks she is absolutely fine. ???
