Re: Dementia with 91 year old Mom

It has been a couple of months since your post. Now is the time if you haven't already done it, to get more support for your mom. She is in a dangerous situation in that she is not aware of her decisions and actions. Safety is first on the list. Hopefully you have been able to get her to a different living situation ie., assisted living or someone living with her.
Check with the county department of Aging, in the county your mom lives in. They have programs that provide aides and financial support in many situations. Home delivered meals, help with housekeeping and laundry, meal preparation. There are also machines that can be rented to "administer" the meds with a timer and notifier. Day Care may be another option. Talk to the caseworker(s) at the County Dept. of Aging for agencies they use/trust if you have to pay out of pocket. Good Luck
