Mom's strokes less than 2 years ago left her unable to function on her own and she needs help with all decisions because she cannot figure out what day or time it is. Her cognitive function is poor and aphasia makes it hard for her to communicate. She's in an assisted living and very happy now. She no longer fights with me and seems resigned to her shortfalls. Her health is good but her money will be gone before Medicare finally gets her off the wait list (2 years in Florida). Question: will she get much worse? She is only 87 and strong.
As it is I pay for private duty care. I can't put her in memory care yet. She loves her apartment and has friends where she is.
