Mum is in a home away from her home town and it is a little difficult for people to get there but she is three times the distance away from me .
I go when I can but it is hard ,I work so I go every other weekend and make it a long weekend when possible ,and I spend all my time with mum,I take time off and make sure I go to appointments etc ,but I'm finding other people are going less and less
I feel this is leaving mum more and more isolated from her family and roots ,I know as the disease progresses it won't matter so much as she won't even remember if we've been or not but just now she needs us
Do people grow away from family members like this ,is this what I should expect them all to do ?
I'm coming to terms with mum needing to be in a home ,she's well cared for and seems to be settling but is this how it is ,we drop away ,the job is done .
Just when' i think I can cope with that bit ' another bit hits me full on
I always start posts knowing what I want to ask ,then i start tying and the issue overwhelms me,sorry
I think i just need someone to tell me this is just another part of what happens or they are just differant but that's ok too
