Hospice provided me with 5 days of respite care for my Mom. The facility is incredibly nice (nicer than any rehab or nursing home she's ever been in) and people rave about the staff. Unfortunately, my mom has been crying everyday since she's been there and says "nobody is nice to her". She says she wants to go home and doesn't understand why she's there. I've tried to explain to her that she's only there for a few days and then I will take her back home. I desperately need this time to get my life (relatively) back on track...work, relationships, a recent move, my mental health, etc. Today, she told me she is dying and wants to be taken home. I don't know what to do for her and I feel terrible since I'm the one who put her in respite. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, did your loved one decline or pass after their stay in respite? I'm terrified that this decision will cause her to give up as she's been fighting to hold on for months now. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
