I am placing my mom in a dementia unit in a nursing home. It is a 96 bed facility. I am worried about her getting infections(mrsa and such) For 2 years I have taken care of her in my house and she as not been sick one day. My mom has severe dementia now and becoming difficult for me to care for her. How do you deal with their roomate? Can you request changes? I just need some advise to those who have had there loved one in a facility. I read about bad experiences in these facilities and it scares me. Has anyone had positive experiences in such a facility? I am really tore up about placing my beautiful mom and putting her in others care. Thanks to those who respond!
