My mom has been in an AL residence since August and she hates it. We placed her there on a MPOA and doctors orders, so pretty much against her wishes. She had been living with me for about six weeks and it wasn’t working. This is a small, very well run residence with a very caring staff. Mom has serious memory problems and can’t live alone. She makes too much money for Medicaid assistance, but barely enough money to afford the AL residence. I visit three to four times a week, we go out to lunch, and I do crafts and other activities with her and the other residents. Other than being her 24/7 activity director, I don’t know what to do. Even when she was living alone she complained of boredom. She has no hobbies and doesn’t watch tv. She was terribly bored when she lived with me. She has no memory of living with me, or of selling her home, or of any event that has occurred in the last couple of years. She hates it there and threatens to leave constantly. I guess I’m just asking for reassurance that she’s in the best place and I did the right thing placing her there.
