This Week's Carenote - 05/07/13

From Marie in Utah

What do you do when there is so much fighting amongst siblings about what to do with Mother? I have tried so hard to get us all on the same page and give our mother continuity of care; but each sibling thinks their way is best, and it's our mother who ends up so confused. Also, what are the best words of comfort to say when the one you care for constantly says she wants to go home? My mom can't go home alone; she is a fall risk, she gets frightened, she forgets to eat and she can't medicate herself. I feel like she thinks she's in prison and I am the warden. I just want for her comfort and safety. Thanks and God be with you.
