My mum was diagnosed with mild alzheimers/vascular dementia last year. Last week she drastically went downhill. She wasn't making sense, seeing and talking to my dad who passed away nearly 2 years ago, couldn't walk and was so confused. We thought she was dehydrated or had a UTI so an ambulance was called. Shes been in hospital ever since although now in the rehab ward. I facetimed her today and she looked so scared and is wary of everyone saying they have imprisoned her. Its breaking my heart as she is going to need to go into a home as she can't ho home and her home is so cold too. Although my heart is telling me its the right decision my head is feeling so guilty as I know this is something she never wanted. How fo I get through this?
