I'm sorry to hear that you are in such a difficult situation with your mother. Many programs for seniors are location specific so I am going to give you some general information to get you started. I would begin by contacting the Area Agency on Aging, they have two websites: www.aoa.gov
. Once you explain your situation they will be able to direct you to resources and people who are in your local area. When you are speaking with the AOA you might want to inquire about tax benefits for caregiver expenses also, unfortunately I am not an expert in that area and again it may vary by state.
If your mom still enjoys socializing you may also want to look into an adult daycare program for her, most programs provide at least one meal as well as age and cognitive appropriate activities. If you are interested in that please give us a call at 866-568-2989 - we would connect you with a Senior Living Advisor who is an expert in your local area and could give you information on adult daycare programs as well as all the communities that might be a good fit for your mom in the future.
