Since getting my mom into the long-term care facility (due to Alzheimer’s) I’ve been super busy getting my mom’s needs taken care of. When a space becomes available you have 48 hours to move in the patient or risk losing the spot. I certainly didn’t want to lose my mom’s spot so I allowed the hospital to transfer my mom while I spent a couple of days going back and forth!
Why? Well, you see, I had to find clothing, shoes, outerwear, personal belongings, and even photos in frames, I also took a piece of furniture and purchased a TV for her. It may have been for naught … she can’t remember how to use the remote. Actually it’s worse than that! She can’t figure out how to open a door.
My mom is in the late stage of Alzheimer’s so it’s like she’s a toddler all over again.
