Re: Family is falling apart

You need to get on to work on your Mom's welfare - to get her a NH and etc. A social worker for her is fine too. Anything for her. Don't wait for the sister. Well if you worry about the money/budget, you need to ask her how much. She is trying to delay it. Be specific and direct with her.
Well, guess dad has dementia too. That kind of confusion and suspicion is really typical of dementia. My FIL does that a lot in the hospital - he said the nurses are crazy! They are trying to kill him! Liars Liars!! Have to escape at night but no food! On and on and it is traumatic for my FIL.

Time for your sister to face it. Both your parents do have dementia. I think it would be a good idea if they can be in the same NH in the same unit.

Hugs,
Nina
