I had to move my Aunt into memory care in July from the ALF side.
Little over a week ago, I got a call from the Director asking if I would agree to move my Aunt into another room with her new friend.
The facility only had 2 halves and had a married couple needing a room.
I was told that the move was done!
Although I have been completely responsible for my Aunt's emotional and physical needs, my brother (5 hours away) has been responsible for her technical needs.
My brother is not the best communicator and after several texts and unanswered calls, he finally told me that he transferred everything to my Aunt's new room, but he didn't know if it worked. Ugh!!
I was able (10 plus calls) to get my Aunt on the phone tonight!!!
When I asked her about her move and new roommate, she has absolutely no idea what I was talking about.
It's so frustrating!!
While I understand that her brain is shot, I think she would still know that she had a new roommate!!
So more phone calls to her ALF tomorrow to the bottom of things.
How do you deal with being a long distance caregiver?
