How often do you call family in a nursing home?

Moving out of their home can be very difficult for a senior.  Your MIL might be hearing things that you guys aren’t, and she might also be handling all the typical things that go with a move.

If you’re able to, maybe give Grandma a few more calls than normal for a short period of time.  It does sound like your MIL was a little out of line, but I’m guessing she’s feeling a bit of stress right now.

Personally, I think once a week is plenty!  I don’t talk to my grandparents that frequently, but I never lived near them, so it’s been standard that we talk on holidays, birthdays, etc. and not on a regular basis.
