My Father just passed 3 weeks ago. Since his passing me, my sister, and other family members have been staying with my 83 yr old Mother around the clock. The first 3 days of my stay I noticed stange things my Mother would do and I brought this to the attention of other family members. We had her checked for Alzhiemers and the diagnosis was mild to moderate. She has started medication but the doctor said the trauma of losing her husband of 54 yrs. may cause it to worsen quicker or meds may not help. Our dilema is we all have jobs, young children, and some of us do not live in the same town. This puts the responsibility on just a few family members because Mom can't be left alone for lnog periods of time. We have talked about a nursing home, but it is very hard since Dad just passed. We are afraid this may make things for her even worse. There is no money for home care or anything else and we seem to be at a dead end. I would appreciate any advice anyone may have.
