Can anyone shed some light for me as to why it is so dangerous to move someone with dementia to a new care home? My mum has been in a great home for 3 years but it is a six hour round trip journey for me and as I am out of work I can no longer afford the money it costs for me to visit her twice a week. I want very much to move her to a new home nearer to me but I've been told that it can be very detrimental to her wellbeing, which obviously I don't want. My choices are to only see her once a week which would break my heart (she has no other visitors) or risk moving her where I can see her at least daily. I just want to do the right thing for her. Her dementia is severe, but at 85 she could live for many more years.
