Thanks to all of you who gave advice about moving my mom to memory care and how to break the news. Long story short, with a mix of aid from her doctor, a long talk from me, a short visit a week in advance, a boost from a family friend and multiple white lies, I moved her in 2 days ago. The good news is she’s out of bed, dressed and clean, and eating. The bad news is she’s obviously disoriented and scared. I also wonder if she’ll regress as others seem less cognitively with it. It’s not as though I expected she would thank me for suddenly uprooting her from her home of 57 years. But she looks so fragile that I find myself wondering if there wasn’t some other way or alternative (even if my rational mind says there wasn’t). Will it get better?
