Our Mom has been sick for awhile and there are 7 of us and all work. We had her in a nursing home, one of the sister got her out and now she refusing to take her Meds. 2 sister's think nothings wrong with her, when we know there's lots of things wrong with her. How can we come together and make the right decision for her. She's called the police a few times and said things like her grandchildren are dead and they been hurt in some kind of things. Vero Beach, Fl. is where she lives and by herself. We need help

She has been told that she did have some Dementia, the sister that took her out of the nursing home feels like she doesn't have it and she's not that sick. I am trying to find out how to go about getting outside help for her. We are living in Gainesville, Fl. that's about 3 hours away, the other 6 are there. To be honest, they don't want the Hassel of dealing with her. Who can I contact there in Vero, if you are that person, than great. We just need to know what else can we do. Thanks Again

Oh Vero Beach I have such fond memories, my parents lived there for 20 yrs when leaving MA to retire..Dad worked at Dodgertown..

Sounds like dementia to me.. I would let her DR know what's been going on.. Does she have any homecare? I would assume the NH had someone contact her when she left there..Why was she in the NH?

It's time for all to work together..

Good luck..

Draford, has your Mom been checked for dementia? With dementia the person will say things that are not true, sadly it is the dementia doing the talking. Calling the police and making a false report is serious business, and right there is a red flag that Mom's mind isn't as clear as some of the siblings are thinking.

Curious why one of your sisters took your Mom out of the nursing home and place her home alone... what were her reasons? Memory issues don't get better, they only get worse. Will the sister who removed her then come in to be her full-time caregiver?
