fear of LO coming home
Dementia patients will have great days, horrible days and everything in between. My mom would have 3 good days in a row sometimes which would make me feel like I was the one with the problem because I couldn't handle her horrible days. I had to make up so many stories about why my deceased father hadn't yet arrived to pick her up. But, that was better than dealing with the fallout of telling her he had passed away.
At 78, you should not be taking care of your LO. Let the professionals handle it from here. Hopefully on her good days, she will learn to adjust to her new living arrangement.
