Dear Aging Care Forum,
Today, I have a new caregiver who is very good. Though my mother is now being resistant, argumentative, no understanding. This is like a flipped day. Totally unreasonable, not being nice.
Is it just because a new day person is with her today and we're all relearning or she is trying out her independence on the new person? It's all a bit stressful for me. If she doesn't take to this new person, it will be the end of the line for me and will need to look at putting her in a home.
I feel like I'm looking at the beginning of the end.
Other things that have happened. Suddenly, her sleep cycle is off. She is talking in her sleep, mumbling, groaning, and not sleeping well. This causes her to want to sleep in the daytime and then she doesn't sleep at night. This current event will make it very hard for my hubby and I to care for her as we have been doing for the last 1.5 years.
Everyday is a new thing. What a game changer.
