This disease can stop her from being able to eat. From being able to walk, at any given time. She was falling and we didn’t know why. No one was discussing with us what frontal lobe dementia was. How devastating it can be. It pulled a disc out on me trying to lift her when she literally was dead weight. The FLD just shut her down from being able to help me. So she was in the hospital for 3 weeks. Not one time in the hospital did she fall. Not one time did she hurt herself. But we were scared of the “what if’s” if we took her home. So we signed her into a NH. The people at the front desk were all “helpful and concerned and made many many promises of how they can help Mom with stuff that we haven’t been able to get the state to help with “ but it’s been 2 days already, that she’s been there. And my mom needs oxygen 24/7. They knew this. Right off the bat, when they were transferring her from the hospital to the nursing home, they didn’t put her on oxygen. By the time she got to the facility, her fingers had began turning purple and blue. Finally they brought her an oxygen condensing machine. But they know they want her up walking everyday to keep up her strength. But now they are saying they don’t have portable oxygen tanks? Just the kind you have to drag with you. My thing is “how can she continue to practice with her walking with a walker, plus drag a smaller oxygen condenser? She can’t walk right. She’d fall even quicker. You heard the saying “if it feels bad in your gut instinct, then it probably is!!” My stomach has been uneasy for 4 days now. I’m trying to separate “feeling bad putting her in a NH because MAYBE I can see to her at home.” “Or am I just uneasy because these people aren’t doing anything they have promised to do for her independence already in just 2 days have passed? Help me someone who has knowledge of frontal lobe dementia.
