i am just learning that my mom may have dementia or alzheimers. she's 82 and lives in senior housing in oxford, ct. my brother and sister live near her, but i live 200 miles away. they help as much as they can but i want to help too. neither of them have ANY money to help. i have a little money saved and am thinking that we maybe need visiting nurses or SOMETHING that can be with mom every day - she needs to take medication, insuline, locks herself out of her apartment often and forgets entire events.
i don't know where to start. i think of taking her to live with me but i rent at someone's house..i don't want to uproot her from familiar surroundings either. i can't live with her at senior housing.
sorry it's so long. any advice or experience that someone's had with this situation would be appreciated.
