She is on Medicaid. She is NOT going to ever leave the nursing home. She has schizophrenia and mild to moderate dementia.
She cannot live alone although she did well on her own 7 months ago. She needs 24/7 supervision. She is depressed in the nursing home. She is well taken care of, but she is much more functional than most of the other residents. She's pretty well functional except she loses her sense of reality. She thinks her sons and grandchildren have move to different states for weird reasons, etc. I, her primary care giver always get the question, "when am I going to leave and go to the other home ?" I just answer when the doctors say you can. The constant question about leaving is getting to me. Any idea as to how to handle it?
