Sorry in advance for being so wordy …My 96 year old mother has late to mid stage dementia, had a mild stroke two years ago and is now wheelchair bound and unable to do almost anything for herself. She lived in an ADU in our backyard for 14 years and has had the money for me to hire four fantastic private caregivers who have been with us for the last 5 1/2 years (24hr the past 3 1/2). For financial, physical and burnout reasons we made the decision to move her to a nice private board and care home four minutes from us. She lived like a queen here at our house but now is living in a drastically less stimulating environment, thus my question:
What should I most realistically expect from a board and care home? Has anyone had/have personal experiences with these places? I’m distressed and thinking of moving her elsewhere but not sure if this is how they will all be.
Not sure what I would do without this community ❤️
