Hi, my mother has been in the nursing home about two months now. I have been carring for my 92 year old father at my home. Every time anyone from the family visits mom cries. She cries the entire time. Begs everyone to take her home. She puts such pressure on everyone that know one wants to visit with her, family that is. My father who has provided for her for 70 years doesnt want to visit because it tears him down to much. What do others do about this kind of situation? It is depressing. Also the nursing home without permission decided to cut my mother's hair. I dont mean a hair cut. Her hair is so short that her scalp can be seen all over the back of her head. I am furious. What right does a nursing home have to do this when a person is not able to consent to anything? When she was admitted the question was asked about having her hair cut and we declined stating we would let them know when we thought it needed cut. Have others had problem with things like this. I thought I would be less tired when mom was in the NH but that isnt true. I feel like I have to watching what is going on all the time. Marcia
