Update on Mother's Care

by Leasa

Hi, it's been a while since I've updated on what's going on with my mom. I am happy to report that she is now in long term care and doing well. She's settled in and the nurses are fantastic with her. She is clean, safe and her health has improved.


She is starting to take an interest in other people around her and it's good for her to be with other people. I do her laundry and visit her every second to third day. Now that some time has gone by, she can see how much work it was for me to have her home and she no longer tries to bully me into taking her home again. We now have nice visits and I am so relieved that she is getting the care she needs.

It was hard at first especially when facing her anger and selfishness. But, guess what....she got over it.

My brothers have also been great! We communicate really well and they are on board with all decisions. So, now we all have a happier life and we know mom is in good hands. :o) There is light at the end of the tunnel, we just have to get tough to get there.
