My mother-in-law has come to the stage where she can no longer take care of herself. She has suffered a few falls at home, had a TIA and general ill health. Doctor & part time care staff suggested full time care in a nursing home near to us so we could monitor her care plan. She has no relatives where she lives to help keep an eye so we have moved her closer to us. We are visiting everyday and helping her settle in. However she has started accusing care staff of allsorts of terrible things, complains about the care, food and basically anything she can really on a daily basis. She says we don't visit her despite seeing her everyday. The list is endless. Is all of this normal when an elderly parent gives up her independence. We are not bothered by her behaviour because we love her dearly but just wanted to know if anyone else has had a similar situation.
