My mother was diagnosed with Alzhiemer's in 2001. She lived with my Dad until he passed away in 2007. At that time my brother and his girlfriend moved in and took care of her for 5 years. They recently moved out and I have taken over her care. I am 66 and still working and trying to maintain both her home and my own. She is becoming more fraile and having more difficulty with transitions. She is in a day care for those with Alzheimer's. She has a very difficulty time with going and coming from the center or if she I take her to my daughter's houses, etc. Even though she is in her own home, she continually asks when she is going home, or when is the bus coming to pick her up. She is very anxious most of the time about going home. I have just started looking into assisted living for dementia care and find that most are perfect for people who are in the middle stages of the disease. However, most are very expensive and they do not take medicaid. So, once all of her money is exhausted I will have to find a nursing home for her. Wondering how others are managing these challenges both financial and emotional.
