A new place

Mom moved into a new “shelter” type place.  It’s a long-term facility that (statement from their website), “provides permanent and transitional housing for adults not capable of completely caring for themselves due to mental illness, physical or intellectual disabilities, or age.  The XXXXXXXXX Home provides safe housing, nutritious meals, and medical stabilization programs that include activities to enhance essential life skills regardless of ability to payost are on disability

She told me she had applied for disability.  She plans to stay in this facility and seems happy.  But I don’t know what to think because she always seems happy at first.  I admit I’ve been frustrated with her lately and really don’t say much when she calls.  She rarely asks about my life except how are the kids.  I feel like we’ve failed because she left the treatment facility and it appears that she thinks she’s healed.
