My mother came down with severe Bronchitis, and then it became pneumonia. She was admitted to the hospital on a Friday. On the following Wednesday she went into a nursing home for Rehab because she wasn't better. She will be in rehab for three weeks. She has been in the home now for one week. I go visit her every night. I've observed that it does appear that she is getting "a little better physically", HOWEVER, mentally she is much much worse. My mother does have Dementia. She is 92 years old. Mentally she just seems more and more out of it now. Her short term memory is totally shot. Her skin tone has a grayness to it. Her eyes have this blank, no one there look to them. Three nights ago she told me that she had been in that home for a month....she has only been there a week. I just don't understand why her mental state has deteriorated so much since she has been in this home for rehabilitation. She put her spoon in her soup upside down the other night, and she seemed utterly confused as to how to make it right. What do you all think of this?
