I got the official call from Winterberry Heights that they can no longer handle mom this morning. Unlike Sunbury, they're being very professional in their language choice about recent incidents, but her "elopement" attempts -- scooting out the door and down the street at every opportunity -- are unceasing, even with new medication, and she's now started to smash windows (both hers and her neighbors') in an attempt to escape and go "home", wherever that might be.

She's fine so long as someone is with her. But the staff now feels that they literally cannot turn their back on her, and they have expressed their unhappiness about this to me. I can understand that.

Winterberry is being much more helpful than Sunbury was, assisting me with finding interim solutions and possible next facilities. I am also making some calls myself. This will be the third facility she'll have lived in in a single month. I will ask them "Is there any situation at all where you might call me to say that she can't stay?" I will avoid the temptation to say "If it were socially and legally acceptable for me to gently set her adrift on an ice floe…"

This is not a good day to have job phone interviews, but I have two anyway, and a long on-site one Friday. I might just shut off my phone for that one.

Ooof. :( I hope you find a long-term solution soon.

So sorry to hear about this recent turn of events, Jason. Thinking of you.
