THIS IS INSANE!
See "What power does a caregiver (no guardian) have over the rights of the elder person they care for, to communicate/socialize with others?" for background.
I got lucky last night and rang my mom when she happened to be close to the phone. We talked for an hour and twenty minutes, mostly chit-chat and general stuff. She would not talk about any specific issues or say much about current circumstances other than "I don't have no idea what they're doing. It's not my house, So they'll do whatever they want to do and when they want to do it. So ahh if I want to stay here I just keep my mouth shut and let then do what they want to do. Cause it's not my house." She was evasive and not willing to say much about specific issues such as phone calls.
Spoke briefly about a "companion" for her mentioning that the daughter doesn't want anyone coming into the house. On that matter my mom replied "...I guess I have to go by the rules of the house. When it's your house you can do what you want, but when you're living in the house when you don't own it you have to follow the rules of the house. So I follow the rules of the house."
Just about the time we were ending our conversation her daughter comes into the room and asks "Who are you talking to?" My mother answers "I will tell you later." I could hear in her voice she didn't want daughter to know she was talking to me. Fear of...
The very next day, MOTHER'S DAY, I called and was greeted with the message "Your call was completed. However the party you are calling is not receiving calls at this time." The "CALL BLOCKING" message. My cell is also blocked. I called on a phone the daughter doesn't know about and it indeed rang through but was sadly unanswered.
I'm not doing to just sit back and let this continue until my mother dies.
