My 86 year old mom has been in an Assisted Living for memory impaired people for five weeks. Much to our surprise, she has adjusted well. She is participating in activities, engaging with staff and residents and looks better than she has in a long time. However, when she is alone with us, she becomes very upset and says that this place is ok and but she wants to go home. She cries and insists that she doesn't want to spend the rest of her life in the facility. We have tried to focus on, "this is what is best for now" but it does not seem to give her comfort. I'm sure that this is a common occurrence but am looking for suggestions for how to best handle the situation.
