A little update...GF spoke to the social worker at the hospital. His mom is likely to go to rehab after her hospital stay, but right now they are still figuring out exactly what is wrong. They are seeing her dementia and thinking she will not be able to live alone anymore.

GF has decided to look into nursing homes up here so he can see her more frequently and monitor her care. Thereís a good one not far from here. But at the moment, thereís still no certainty about whatís going on; itís all speculation.

For now we just have to be patient. He had planned to visit her tomorrow (before she fell), so he may go see her in the hospital and try to get some more concrete information. He lost his key to her apartment, so not sure if he can get in, but Iím sure he would like to tidy up in there if he can get in somehow. Heís hoping maybe his mom has a key with her.

Itís certainly possible that the dementia symptoms will improve as she recovers, but she has been depressed since her two girlhood friends and her brother died in the past few months, and that has precipitated some decline in her functioning too.
