I’m a RN who has been living and caring for both my mom who has Alzheimer’s and my dad who had a stroke in June. Due to caregiver stress
the Drs have said my parents are not to be living together.
Mom's short term memory is very bad
She yells at u one minute and the next had no idea.
She becomes very agitated when we clean anything and when we try to move things etc..
We have found the perfect place for Mom and they have availability
So dad and myself signed the lease after the nursing assessment was done.
I have written on her calendar the move in date as she looks at that thing religiously.
We have told her a therapeutic lie saying dad has to go back to rehab and she needs to go to assisted living now as they have space.
She is very concerned about her home, dog, and things.
I have told her I will be living here to take care of things.
She still gets angry.
I know we were told to not involve her in the actual moving of items and I agree, but how, short of drugging her, do we get her to assisted living?
