Everything went remarkably well. We told Mom that we had plumbing problems and that the water would be cut off for a week or so and she would be staying at this boarding house. When she walked in the place, she immediately started smiling and talking to everybody. We haven't visited her yet. Will wait 3-4 days. Wish us the best!
That's great news! She's obviously going to enjoy the company a lot, and that will put your minds and hearts to rest. For many people in this situation, a care home IS better than being at home alone with just people popping in and out, who they don't remember so they think they are alone all day.
