She has been there for 6 months is is very happy - We are close by, and can visit every day.
However, last week a male patient arrived & has made her life a misery, it is very sad that he has Dementia, but his behaviour is most disturbing to my mother, he constantly stands at her door and stares at her, and in front
OK, so today was not as good a day as it could have been.
It was my husband's third visit to the early (younger) onset group.
Just to set the background - prior to the first visit I had spent a few weeks travelling the bus route with hubby to make sure he knew how to get there. However, just before the first session started we were told that my husband would be driven by minibus (along with other group members) to and from the destination. It was an unexpected but welcome

Husband really getting into
I knew yesterday was going to be a busy day. Hubs on a 12 hour shift, son starting an extra work experience course to boost his marks for uni application - and my gorgeous youngest daughter had her 13th birthday. She had a 'fun' day planned - her usual theatre group to start, home to change, and then out to 'lunch' with 3 of her friends, followed by a cinema visit with even more mates, and finally home for a takeaway birthday tea - hubs was pretty sure he could get out of work an hour or so earlier
