Hi, Im new to this site, but I needed a place to... Talk/vent about my situation with my mom. Mom is blind, and was just diagnosed with Alzheimer's induced dementia. Over Christmas she kept talking about people in her room and wandering about. I went out the day after Christmas amd came home to find her wandering the living room. Having knocked over almost everthing- including a full bookcase which could've crushed her. She's been in the hospital and geriatric psych unit combined since that day. I was told this past Sunday that mom needs to be in a facility because she needs 24/7 care even with the meds she's now on. I know this is best for her, but I'm so scared of the horror stories about senior care facilities. On top of that, she only has Medicaid and Medicare combined with her SSI disability checks. What kind of facility will that produce? I'm in no financial position to help at all; and to top it off, mom has been living with me the last 6 years and her SSI helps with rent. So right now I'm assuming that not only will mom's SSI need to be used toward a facility, but then I can't make rent and we just signed a new lease for our apt in Oct. I'm stressed, worried, scared, and trying to trust in God... But... It's so hard. Mom had her first good day sisnce all this started two days ago. She was able to remember it was me the whole visit, but she's still constantly seeing hallucinations... I'm losing my mother, part of my financial security because she will need to go to a facility, and I'm going to be losing the home we've shared for 6 years... I don't know what I'm doing really, and I myself feel so lost. I'm not sure if this was the place to say all this, but I had to get it out amd I'm hoping that others on this site may understand or could relate to my situation and fears.
