How do you know when it’s time to place a loved one in assisted living or nursing home?
Mom has had dementia for 2 years now and is only 66. She sees and hears things that aren't happening. She asked me for help and I drove with intentions of bringing her home. She spanked me and attacked me, and told me I wasn't old enough to tell her what to do. Shes changed so much. Shes lost 40 pounds but eats plenty. They have put her in hospital to have her evaluated. Im so confused cause she tells me one thing but does another.
I am trying to decide if an asissted living will work or a nursing home.
She refuses to take meds. Im an only child and have to do alone. Please help....
