Coping with the great grandchildren

Rate this Entry
Hi, my mum and dad are both in the same care home. Mum has dementia and dad is blind and quite frail. Today they had to be given separate rooms because my poor mum will not give my poor dad a minutes peace however, my other problem is my grandchildren who are aged 2 and 4. They are the apple of both mum and dads eyes. They have been visiting them since they went into the home 4 months ago but it is getting increasingly more traumatic for them. Some of the other residents are grabbing hold of them when we go to visit and it is quite frightening for them. I want my grandchildren to have fond memories of their great grand parents not frightening ones! Any advice on how to manage this?

    Hello viccra02, are there any quiet lounges or visitor lounges that you could use or could you all sit in your mum or dad's room.
