My mom moved into assisted living in early December. She recently spent time in the hospital and then rehab and will be moving back to her apartment today. I have been with her every step of the way throughout her hospital stay and rehab. My sisters not so much, which in a way is a blessing. They finally after two weeks went to see her Monday evening. My husband and I were just leaving when they got there and I can't even explain how the whole feel of the room just changes when they walk in. I talked to my mom yesterday morning and she commented she had a headache when she went to bed and she could feel her heart beating. When I went to see her after I got off of work, she told me that the two of them are toxic and just a couple of bullies. You could see that her whole attitude from the day before was changed and I blame the two of them for that. I feel they have two jobs in this and that is 1. to love their mom and 2. to support her, neither of which they do.
People have told me I need to restrict them from seeing her but how can I do this when they are her daughters? I don't want to do anything that will upset my mom.
Any suggestions from others who might have been in this situation are most welcome. Thank you in advance.
