It’s been a long time since I have posted here and there are many reasons for that. I have encountered a few challenges over the past few months with my mother who is 97 years of age.
She had been in and out of hospital for several months and I was spending my days and nights looking after her when she was out of hospital and at her residence. Things got to a point where she was admitted to hospital and could no longer return to her residence and we had to look into a nursing home.
She is now somewhat settled into the nursing home, confined to a wheelchair and dependent on others to take her to meals, get her washed and dressed, etc. I visit her daily for 1-4 hours, but she still wants me there more. Just last night she had a crying session and that was after I had been there 2 1/2 hours. She didn’t want me to leave.
I am unsure how long this challenge will last. But I will do my best to keep looking after my mom.
