My MIL is in a nursing home 2 weeks with dementia and will be in long term care. She is very combative and I worry they could evict her. She has very high blood pressure. When admitted, 260/88. She will not take her meds, have any injections, and tears off medicine patches in the home. Her blood pressure is going nuts. We reinforce she must take them every time we see her, but no use. Last night I called the home and suggested they put them crushed in her food. They said, "what a great idea!". You mean to tell me $11,000 a month and not one person on staff thought to do this!? We are having issues with her clothes also at the home. Is this the norm? Can they think of solutions at all?
