My mother, a 77-year-old, healthy woman, was living on her own all summer. In September, she was diagnosed with “significant” dementia.
My sister and I saw a dozen facilities in New York and Massachusetts. In November, we placed mom in a facility on the South Shore. We soon discovered that they pulled a bait and switch on us. My sister kept looking and 24 hours later, she called me and said, "I've found it."
