In assisted living for 3 weeks and wants out. Mom is not great at making friends but responds to friendly people. She doesn't think that she needs the help that Assisted Living provides - she doesn't "need all that stuff" and needs to get out. I don't know how to make her understand that she has dementia and that it's not safe for her to live by herself. My brother and I have talked to her about her memory and that we want her to be safe. She disagrees. The assisted living community that we chose is nice but I don't think that they have done enough to make her feel comfortable with living there. She doesn't think that there are many other residents there that she can be friends with. It is a relatively small community and new - in business 1 1/2 years, capacity is 92 which they are about at half that. I thought smaller community would be better for her, but now I am worried that this is part of the problem. Not enough capable more vibrant people to become friends with.
