Update on my Ma

Postby mowmud » Sat Sep 04, 2021 2:57 am

I think all of yall know, she is in a nursing home now. When she was taken in, I told them she's the Dennis the Menace type.

Two weeks back, she had to be moved to a special unit. Nothing health wise, just 'exit seeking' ... my Ma is trying to escape. She is wheelchair bound. Where is she going?

Got a call yesterday, she attacked another older lady in the great room, a general big space for folks to gather and have fun, this is boggling my mind.

I've heard of kids getting expelled out of kindergarten... but I think my Ma might be getting expelled out of the nursing home... :?

Then I gotta deal with it again. This is not the way my Ma was. She is not the same person.

mowmud,

I'm sorry for you needing to worry about all this. I'm also sorry for your mother, because I'd guess she must be in some kind of mental pain to be acting the way that she is--so different from herself. Hang in there...

I think I remember you saying that she was suffering from dementia. That changes some peoples personality. Just try to remember her as she was, she is not herself at this point.

I wish I knew what advice to give but, the only thing that comes to mind is to show your mother how much you love her...........gfp

My father tried to escape when he was in a senior complex. His house had been sold, his vehicle was gone oh, I don't know what he was thinking, but it was extremely sad to see as intelligent a person as he was deteriorate. My sympathies to you
