I live far from my mother. She has been experiencing a rapid mental decline and is now calling me in what I can only describe as a delusional state -- for example, that everyone in her building is leaving for California and she is going to be left alone. She is crying and scared at times but doesn't appear to be at risk of harming anyone or herself.
In the last few months, my sibling, who lives closer, has taken her to the ER in the middle of a less severe episode. They ran every test and found nothing aside from some verbal confusion.
Last week during an episode, I had a police officer do a wellness check. She did not appear to be in danger, so they couldn't do anything.
I was just able to use social services to set up an in-home counseling service, but this doesn't feel like the exact need right now. My sibling may take her back to the ER again Saturday, in hopes of them finding something (last time, she seemed to rally when she talked with them; things are more severe now).
Is this the route or am I missing something?
She has no healthcare or money. The last time I called Adult Protective Services, they put me in touch with Catholic Charities, which provides aging services in the area, and I was unable to complete an intake without her personal info (SS#, etc).
