Good day, I'm so glad I found this platform to be able to talk about my frustrations. My mom is 61 years of age, she was diagnosed with dementia earlier this year. She lives with me and my 7 years old son. She forgets a lot and my son has even realized. My mom wants to be alone most of the time, her mood swings differ and are just unpredictable. During her bad days, she usually shuts herself in her room and cries the whole day. When I try to offer her assistance, she replies by telling me that she does not want to live anymore, she does not see the point of living. She has been seeing a state psychiatrist (who has diagnosed antidepressants for her) and has encountered one session with a psychologist. My sister is married and lives far from us but she usually helps me with taking mom to the clinic, hospital and doctor appointments. My mom is usually alone during the day (weekdays) when I'm at work and my son is at school. I cannot afford carer at this stage. I'm worried about my mom, especially when I'm not around to keep an eye on her. Do I have to pay a fee if I want to enroll her in a Home? What can I do?
