My mother is 76 with some physical, but mainly psychological issues. Currently she lives alone and is able to bathe, dress, and feed herself. However, she is an extreme hypochondriac - goes from doctor to doctor, although in reality her only real diagnoses (besides psychological issues, anxiety and bi-polar, for which she on meds) is arthritis, osteoporosis, some GI issues. She does have a bit of weakness in her legs - uses a walker although she doesn't necessarily need it, just convinced herself that she does. She is a difficult person - in need of constant attention - calls doctors, help centers, case workers, and others multiple times during the course of the day to the point of harassment. She eventually alienates everyone she comes in contact with because of her neediness, which leads to anger, and her eventually lashing out because (in her mind) no one is doing enough to help her, or they have "mistreated" her in some way. At this point she has convinced herself that she has major health issues and that she needs someone to prepare all her meals and to take care of her, says she doesn't feel safe where she is, and she believes that assisted living will be the answer to all her problems. In short, my brother and I have been looking into small assisted living centers. However, she is very low income and has little assets, which means my brother and I will be picking up much of the tab. (She has been on the Medicaid Waiver list for many years but nothing has come through - and even if it does, no guarantee she will qualify medically. So we can expect to be out of pocket for perhaps quite a while.) We finally found what seems to be a decent assisted living in our lower price range, which has proven difficult. However, given my mother's behavioral issues and history in her interactions with people, my brother and I are 90% certain she will get kicked out. There is a 30-day clause in the contract, which will not allow us much time to find another place, especially a decent one in our price range. I am not sure what to do - do we put her in there anyway and take our chances? Eventually we will have to sell her house because even that small amount of equity will help to pay for some of this. This will mean she will not have anywhere to return to if she gets kicked out, and neither my brother nor I are willing to take her in. She is just too difficult and demanding. Any advice is welcome.... ?????
