Mom has been in AL facility for 1 year. She is hearing impaired and cannot stand or toilet herself w/o assistance. We communicate with her through her GrandPad by email due to her poor hearing. I know it is discouraged to become attached to certain caregivers but it is human nature to bond with some more than others in this setting. Mom is not experiencing mental decline in any form so this is especially difficult to absorb. The entire family loves this woman who may be leaving. She has been very accommodating to all of us.
