I don't want to seem like I'm interfering but my step dad is planning to take mum who has severe vascular dementia to scotland where all her family are for a long weekend this coming week. I keep reading about how you should keep sufferers in surroundings they know but my mum hasn't been home in years and at times she talks to her sisters as if she thinks they are still at school !! Other reason is she may expect to go to places she might remember like my grandparents old house and still expect them to be there also two of her sisters died and will she may get agitated about it. I've seen he agitated many times and it's not nice! Seeing all these relatives I think might bring it on also! I did ring her doctor to get advise and he has said it could be good for her but it's not ideal and could seriously make her worse!
I've tried to tell him it's not a good idea but he doesn't seem to listen even her sisters have tried to tell him but to no avail
In some ways it would be good for her to maybe see people and in some ways say good byes but I'm so confused!! Has anybody else experienced this please?
