Not been on for sometime but thought I had better dip in and see how my friends on here are doing. I am so glad the move went well and that Eric is settled and you have so much peace of mind now.
Love Julie xx
Not posted or been on here very much since the upgrade as the white background is too much for my eyes.
Things have been ticking over quite smoothly with mum in the home until about 10 days ago when mum complained that her mouth was sore.She wears dentures and the staff struggle to...
It has been a while since I updated on Ian's mum. Mum has now been in CH since Nov 2009. Her short term memory is not functioning and she needs constantly reminding about things.EG- Julie and Ian are coming to take you out- we turn up and she is ready or nearly ready but it always is a...
Just to let you know that I regularly review MIL's care plans normally just before she sees the consultant for a review.( I attend the reviews as Ian works away) I am fortunate that mum's care home is very open and honest with me even though I am not the next of kin!

Mum has been in the CH now for just over a year and seems very settled. The company is good for her and she looks so much better for good food. Her latest MMSE was 20 and they are going to leave...
I am so sorry to read your sad news-apologies for being late to reply. Your love for Jan shone though all your posts.
She was one very special lady in your life
Love Julie and Ian and Family xx
Some people tell little white lies-like "Everyone your age is getting a health check-it's part of a national thingy to keep you fitter longer" and quite often if it is explained that it is free and not going to cost older people may go along with it. Things like underactive thyroid...
We took mum out for a meal the other week and after she had been to the loo she confessed to having 2 skirts on!- It was sweltering so I insisted she went back and took the thicker under one off- wonderful things baby changing bags for hiding things lol.
Mum has also confessed to wearing 3...
