We brought my mom to the hospital because we found her unable to make her coffee and hallucinating and had been up all night kinda tearing up her house. She was diagnosed with vascular dementia after finding she had many mini strokes, oddly enough she was fine the night before, of course we saw some signs of dementia like forgetfulness, and she was experiencing "dreams" which turned out to be hallucinations. She was evaluated in the hospital and we were told she needed 24/7 care and was nursing home material. After 5 weeks in the hospital we found her a nice memory care facility and took her there last week, we told her she needed to go to another hospital to get strong again. When she was in the hospital she was hallucinating, losing weight not sleeping and depressed. She has been in the memory care facility for a week and has perked up, she's sleeping, eating and bright eyed again, at first she thought she worked there :). The past few days she's been more lucid and asking to go home, when I tell her the Dr says she must stay longer to gain weight and regain her strength she gets upset. This now has me question weather I made a mistake putting her there! She still believes her dead relatives are alive but other then that she's almost herself. Since her decline was so quick we had no time to adjust to her having dementia and am unsure if this is normal, will she get worse again? I'm distraught tonight with guilt, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
