My mom has been in a nursing home for over 4 yrs. she has dementia and recently has not been able to figure out how to eat her breakfast. Once out of bed and into her wheelchair the breakfast is delivered to her room. ( My mom WILL NOT EVER go to the dining room). Once the meal is delivered the staff leaves the room. My mom sits there for hours crying and trying to figure out how to eat. My sister and I both have witnessed this happening and have started going to the NH before breakfast to help her. Her dementia is terrible in the morning so breakfast and rising is very difficult. While this everyday appearance by my sister and I is working (we stay 2 hrs min) we are finding we cannot keep it up everyday of our lives. The nursing staff will not help her eat breakfast. If she wants their help she must go to the dining room. What shall we do? We are getting worn out.
