Re: Dementia with 91 year old Mom
Thanks for all the advice from all of you. No, I have not gotten anymore support for my Mom as yet. Yes, I have been looking into it but with the holidays and a vacation thrown into everything I have not made any decision.
Mom is in an adult retirement center that does all the cooking. She chooses to eat her breakfast in her apartment. She only has coffee & cereal for breakfast so no cooking is involved. We did get her a coffee pot that has an automatic shut off after 2 hours, I think.
I have already looked into a machine that would alert Mom to take her meds BUT that would require her to be in the same vicinity as that machine. She spends a lot of her day down in the "living room" of her complex. They have lots of couches there and people visit with each other.
Again, thank you. I have found this to be a big help for myself. More later.
