I know exactly what you are going thru. I just recently had to place my Gma in an assisted living center. She lived with me for 4 years and her dementia and health declined so rapidly that the Gma that I once knew was gone. She seems to have settled in and is doing well there. They take real good care of her and she has even made some friends. Before she was very lonely, even though she had me, my hubby and my 2 kids she didn't have any friends of her own because she pretty much became a shut in. It is not only hard on the person who has the dementia but hard on their loved ones as well. This is a very unfair condition to have! It robs us of the ones we love so dearly. I am glad that you were able to find a nice place to place your aunt. That is the most important thing I think! Some places just don't care for the elderly like they should.
