Nursing home adjustment period. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
Hello, my MIL was recently admitted to a nursing home after repeated episodes of wandering into the street and other dangerous behaviors. We had to face that we as a family, could no longer keep her safe. She has only been in the nursing facility for three weeks. Except for four days during the second week she spent in a hospital after a bad fall that occurred while she was trying to "go home to her Mother (who has long ago passed)". Visits from myself and her children only cause her to cry and beg us to take her home. We are now at a realization that she needs time to adjust without our presence. Her medications have also changed and she now gets Trazadone and Seroquel, as she is often agitated with everyone around her. Has anyone else had a similar experience? She was diagnosed with moderate stage dementia in July 2016
