I applied for a respite where my mom would go into a nursing home for 6 nights. I am having anxiety over how and when to tell her because I know she will strongly resist. The stay is planned for over a month from now. There is no other way for me to do this as it would be way too costly to get someone in the home, and this will be a free stay paid for by the Office for the Ageing. The reason it cannot be assisted living is because she is blind and needs guidance and assistance with everything. She does not have dementia, nor is she incontinent. I also would like to hear any tips on making her short stay more comfortable. She is very spoiled and will throw crying or yelling tantrums if she does not get what she wants when she wants it. She is narcissistic and feels entitled, and rarely says please or thank you.
