My trip has been extended.

I'm staying until August 25th and will get home after being away for five weeks. God, it seems like forever. Mom has her good days and her bad days, so I want to spend as much time with her as I can. She's so happy that I'm here. She was very lonely and I think I'm helping. (I hope, anyway.) She's going to have to be alone eventually, but she has a place attached to my brother Dan's house, so she's never alone at night or early in the morning. I think she'll do just fine. :) I haven't read live journal in ages. I must go and catch up. I hope you all are well. :)

Hugs, Patt

I'm sure it's a difficult time for everyone. I'm so glad you're able to be with her and help her through this transition period.

Are there any adult or elderly services in your area, a place where maybe she can go and be with people for parts of the day or a few times a week? It might help her to be with others for activities. She wouldn't feel so alone or cut off and she might make some new friends.

Grey, she has dementia, so it makes her unsure of herself with strangers. She won't do anything without one of us with her. And she's getting worse, I think. Then there is the depression she seems to be fighting every day. (sigh)

It sounds so frustrating for her and for you. {{{{hugs}}}}
