How is your daughter? Any update? I hope they've been able to throughly check her to ensure there isn't any pain or otherwise untreated issues (teeth/gums?).

Iím thinking of you, too, linda.

I hope she is feeling better also.

I talked to the house manager.
She called because she could tell that I was worrying at the zoom meeting yesterday. She said that DD finally went to sleep yesterday afternoon and that seemed to help. The staff that is there now knows her better and can talk her down. The weekend staff didnít know her well. The problem is that theyíre quarantined and are supposed to stay in their rooms. DD just canít understand that, and she doesnít understand that she needs to wear a mask when she leaves her room. They still have to do this until the Fourth of July. Itís not going to be easy, but they assured me that they could deal with her. I said I just didnít want her to hurt herself or anyone else. They said they wouldnít let that happen. The staff members are back who know her well, and they can handle it. They are also taking away her melatonin which isnít helping and giving her trazadone. It should help her sleep better. More than you ever wanted to know, Iím sure. Thank you for your prayers and support. We will see her again on the Fourth of July, and they will be able to leave their house and go back to work on the fifth.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad the regular "crew" is back!

Praying things remain calm for a bit!

That news will help you sleep better also, Linda.

There is no substitute for staff who know the residents well and have established strong relationships with them. I'm continually impressed by the positive comments you make regarding the staff at your daughter's home.

I'm glad the staff members who know her are back and they are confident in their ability to work with her. It sounds like there is a lot of change (plus her being home that time), so that's a lot of transitioning.

Iím glad she has finally been able to get some rest.
