(I arrived in the morning and the aide said Mother had been crying) Heather: Mother, why are you crying?

“I have a broken heart.”

(Mother would or could not explain why.)

(Heather:  Mother, what are you thinking?)

“How we can get along?  Well, I want to stay together.  I don’t want to be yanked away.”

(Heather:  Mother, the staff will not take you away from your company.  They like you to have visitors here.  They will not tell me to leave.)

“Yves [a certified nurses aide at Kent Regency], he is going to give me a book.  I think that is what he said.”
