My mom has been with me for 11 months. Her level of physical care and dementia has increased. I am exhausted in body and spirit.
She no longer understands that I am her daughter; she sees me as one of the "girls" that cares for her. I think this will work to her advantage since she won't feel like she's being abandoned by her only child.
We all have been telling her about all the nice things at the new place--activities, salon, chapel, courtyard, spa room, etc. And I honestly think she will be happy there eventually. She's always been very social and at my house, she only is around me and the 2 ladies that help me since it's very hard to get her out now.
I am looking for ideas that may better help her make the transition. I get very anxious when I think of her first few days there.
