We finally agreed we had to take mum to a care home (which so far is proving really good). She was very aggressive at first, threatening suicide and punching me, but has calmed down somewhat.
However she believes she is only in the home for two weeks and we're at our wits end as to how to tell her (truth or white lies, whichever anyone else has found best) that she is staying there .......we (my 80 year old dad who has health problems, and myself who moved back home to look after them both) simply can't manage her at home any more.
She has been at the C.H. less than a week and has already packed her suitcase ready to leave.
Does anyone have any advice please?
