She wouldn't accept help at her home, was verbally abusive, had medications confused, wanted to drive despite vision issues, and at 88 years old thought she could take care of disabled wheelchair son. She can't remember that she couldn't do everything. She hates us all for moving her and insists she'll be fine back at home.
Conversations go round and round no matter how we try to direct them into positive ideas about participating in activities, getting involved at her assisted living home.
Antidepressants made her drowsy and affected sodium, AST, negatively.
She calls family 8-10 times a day. I answer 1x, try to talk about something good (grandkids, family), etc. and then end conversation. It is a frustrating and sad call.
She has some sort of doctor/lab appt almost every week. Family visits her 3 to 4 times/week.
What else can I say or do?
