Okay, here's a dilemma I'm trying to figure out. My mother is in a nursing home and has stabilized. She's off the mechanical soft diet and is doing so much better than most of last year. Her roommate, however, has gone into a sudden decline and is not expected to recover. They are not close, but they get along okay.
There is a very strong chance that my mother will be in the room when the roommate passes away. I am concerned that this may upset her, but I don't know if I should even bring it up. I'm thinking of calling the nh social worker (family liaison) to find out how they typically deal with this type of situation. Or am I seeing a problem where there is none?
Thanks and hugs,
