I am looking into my mum going to a day care centre for a couple of days a week. Dad is now at a stage where he desperately needs a break and has agreed to this after much persuasion from me. We have been in touch with social services and they have offered her a place at a NHS day care centre but when i have looked more into it it seems to be generally for the elderly (mum is only 69) and not specialised for dementia patients.
Is there such centres that specialise in dementia patients? We are prepared to go private but i have searched the internet for local private centres but am getting no where and don't know where to look next.
Any advice would be great. We are now reaching a new stage in mums dementia and i do not want to send her somewhere which will not be ideal. I have at last got dad to agree and i don't want to get this wrong for them both.
