I remember going through similar stuff with my Mom's cancer, Barb. You can't second guess yourself and you can't feel guilty. Just be there for her as I know you are. Lots of love, prayers and hugs coming your way.

The nursing home that my mom is at is suppose to be one of, if not, the top nursing home in the area but I still have problems dealing with the bureacracy and the errors that I see on a regular basis. I visit my mom daily.

Not sure if you meant Barb or me, but since you quoted my post I figured I'd better answer! I've been here pretty much every day. I just don't always get on until a little later, and I am working on getting some stuff done around the house, so I need to stay off of this thing even more than I have been!

I go thru these periods, too..........how about a night out on the town? maybe a bed and breakfast or a hotel downtown and a nice dinner out......sometimes you just need to get away and charge up again........

Yes, I visit my mother everyday and this very famous home that gets lots of amazing press is the very one that I visit everyday and adds to the stress that I am under dealing with my mom who has two forms of dementia. There is no support--it is just a business and I am tired of jumping through their hoops. Had I known better, I would have placed my mom with the nuns but this place had such great reputation and is very close to home. Even at the best places, there is a lot of room for improvement. It gets so that I hate walking in the door but the doctors wouldn't let me keep my mom at home anymore. She needed more care than I could give and she kept firing the nursing aides that I had hired for her.
