Hello. My 94 year old mom was in assisted living for less than 2 months and got pneumonia and ended up in the hospital. She had some onset dementia before the hospital. She has been there for 3 weeks and recovering and will be going to a nursing home for long term care. Her dementia seems to have gotten worse and I am afraid she will get worse in a nursing home. I don't think there is much I can do for her now other than visit her daily and make sure she is being taken care of. I am wondering how I should handle all this emotionally because it's been tough! I don't know what to do. Also, all my personal plans are on hold. I retired a year ago and most of that year was putting her into assisted living. Very depressing year for me. If her dementia gets worse should I change the focus to myself and start living my life again? I have wanted to move out of state, but that probably isn't a good idea if she is still living. Please help. Thanks.
