My mom is 99 yrs old and is the same way, in Dec. social services in NC told me I had 30 mins. to move my mom to an enviorment where she was never alone, I live less than a quater mile from her an am in an out all day but that was not good enough for them. Try explaining to a 99 yr old why she has to stay in her daughters house with screaming, fighting teens!! She stayed with us for about 5 weeks, of course no one was ever around when I needed help! I was so stressed I went down to 95lbs. Every time I took mom to the Dr. they wanted to hospitalize me. I also began to resent my mom, feel REAL BAD about that, but it is the hardest thing in the world to see your tough, rugged, mom reduced to a baby!! I finally had to give in and put her in residential care in Dec. now the state of NC is trying to take her home & property, plus they only leave me 30.00 a month to pay her bills! IMPOSSIBLE!!! At this time I am planning on bring her home, she is very unhappythere, just don't know how we will manage as my husband lost his job, and there is no work available for me, plus I will have to take care of mom..Any suggestions??????
