Hi everyone. Sorry for posting again, but I've had some news today which had really shocked me. From previous posts, you may be aware that I placed my mom into a CH for 4 weeks (their minimum time) over the period I went on holiday during half term week. Although mom wasn't overly keen, she was involved in the decision to stay there especially in light of the fact that the main reason for the respite was not only to get her meds and food regulated, but because she'd become locked in her house and as there's only me to look after her, I couldn't risk going away and leaving her in potential danger. Whilst I was away, mom was very aggressive when I contacted her and often slammed the phone down on me, so I arranged to talk things over with her GP when I got home. After a lengthy discussion with him, he was of the opinion that moms mental health would decline rapidly if she retuned home and SS would see her return as a get out clause for them. He said as I hold poa and if it could be financed, she would be much better off staying put. Moms siblings live abroad except for one sister who, if you've read some of my other posts, you will know because I'm adopted and not blood according to the sister, I'm not worthy of an opinion and I'm guilty of every accusation my AD suffering mother had ever made against me. So I found out today that my mother's siblings who are abroad are disgusted with me for putting my mom in a CH. I'd love them to shimmy across the water and deal with an hour of what I've been dealing with for months and months before they convey their disgust at me, but just wondering how I should deal with these uneducated idiots!?
