Today while my sister, cousin, and I were out shopping Mom called and said someone tried to break into her house but didn't want us to call the sheriff(this puts up a red flag to me). We were close to the sheriff's office so we went in and reported it and they sent a sheriff out and we were right behind them. Well Mom got so mad at us for calling the sheriff and was really rude to us. This brought up another red flag...did this really happen or was she doing this for attention. The sheriff said that normally break ins do not happen during the day time but sometimes they do. Mom would not go home with any of us said that she was fine and she would just stay home(another red flag went up). When I got home my hubby said that Mom had just called him about 5 minutes before I called to inform him that I was going over to Mom's because someone had tried to break in. He said Mom didn't mention anything about anyone trying to break in, all she wanted to know was where we were. He told her we were out shopping and she said bye---so this combination of things makes me wonder if Mom really did have someone trying to break in.
I called my sister who lives out of town and told her not to mention to Mom about me telling her about what had happen but to call and ask how her day went. Mom did tell her about the suppose breakin but said the person was driving either a green van or station wagon...she told us and sheriff that it was a green station wagon.
I do have Mom a emergency call button that she finally will wear around her neck and the sheriff told her to push that if this happened again. I mentioned to the sheriff that Mom said someone was ringing her doorbell almost every morning around 2AM & sometimes at 4AM...Mom didn't say a word when I told him that.
A cousin was with us and when we came home she told me that Mom really needed to be in a facility that she was pass that point. Now at least I have someone else that sees, what my siblings wont', that Mom needs not be by herself.
My sister who is POA will not deal with this and even though she came to Mom's when I called her she still doesn't think anything is wrong. My sister, as I posted earlier, is leaving the day after Christmas for the winter and won't be back for 5-6 months. Mom is also wondering outside(Pond behind her house) and is going to the mailbox in her night gown top...no pants on and it's cold here.
My sister did tell the sheriff that Mom is leaving doors open...which by the way I've been telling my sister this forever..while she's asleep on the couch.
The middle of next month I will, I hope it will be, my finally surgery for this cancer and I truly can not handle Mom on my own.
How do I get my sister to do something in 2 1/2 weeks? Thanks
