I am American married to a jordanian and we live on the outskirts of Amman. My father recently passed and My mother has dementia, but not the alzheimers kind; instead FTD. She still knows who I am where she is who the president is etc. but she has completely erratic behavior that makes zero sense and left unsupervised is a danger to herself. She needs 24 hour supervision. Unfortunately, because some of her erratic behavior has resulted in self harm no long term care facility for memory care will take her. I also realize that sticking your mom in a place and being 7000 miles away is really not a good thing and my conscience would be riddled with guilt. My husband and I moving back to the USA is not an option unfortunately at this time and even if we could she'd still need 24 hour supervision. I am 100% at a loss right now as of what to do. She is cutrently in a hospital as they will not release her without a care plan. As I was driving tonight I had the crazy idea that maybe I could take her to Jordan. Has anyone brought their parents to live with them? Are there live in nursing aids that could help supervise her 24/7 and help with ADLs? What about healthcare/insurance? Could she get a residency card? Is this a horrible idea or a good one?
