Well my dear Mom has never got back to her normal self, pre-great escape era.
I have decided to move her to a different place. They moved her downstairs to full nursing home level and I am just not happy with the care down there. I won't go into details but the new place is only about 8 minutes away and I go to Caribou at least 3-4 times a week. So I will be able to see her way more often. Where she is now is about a half hour away. My dad is in the VA home as well so it would be so much better for all.
She has had such a hard life and deserves to have great care. I wish I could care for her here at my home but she wouldn't be safe.
I love you MOM.
