What to do about a specific visitor?
Mom has a gentleman friend who visits her several times a day. They have been friends for several years, but now he is presenting problems.
1 He tells her she does not need to be there (in Assisted Living) that he can take care of her.l
2 She does not participate or try to become friends with any of the other patients.
3 The staff has already informed him that he comes to often because she rarely takes part in the activities, and he ignores them.
4 I have tried to reason with him about these things, but am having no luck.
5 If he is not there, she goes to her apartment & sits & waits for him to come back, or just goes to bed. She does not socialize.
6 Most times when I go to see her, she has her things packed & wants me to take her back home. Says if I don't have time he can do it.
I feel, as does the doctor & nurses, that he is a hinderance to her situation. Should I stop him from visiting/contacting her?
I don't know what is best for her!
