hello to all
i am trying to cope with the everyday struggles of caring for my 76 yoa mother who is now in the advanced stages of alzheimers. my brother whom i have had an off and on again relationship has put our mother in a nh, he is the poa
myself and my family(my husband and 3 daughters) have been caring for her for the last 5 years.well recently she fell, while attempting to pick something up from the floor, and broke her pelvic bone in 2 places.of course we called ems and she was taken to the hospital and we were told she would need about 16 weeks of therapy to help her heal.
without even talking to me , he decides to put her in the nh, she has been there for about 10 weeks now, she is miserable,often agitated with everyone,she begs me to take her home. ii have asked my brother to pleases let her come back and get in home help for her , he of course says no, this is not fair,my mother raised me, and taught me to be a loving, caring adult, its my turn now to take care of her now
my whole family is upset.... we don't know what to do
please if you have any ideas,opinions...anything
