I’ve just received a call from a friend of MIL who has visited her this evening. Although MIL is home, she is deeply unhappy. Her friend told her it was her choice to come home, even though we had arranged a lovely care home for her. Her reply was, “Why did they not tell me? Everything was taken out of my hands.” The new carer, when putting her to bed told both MIL and her friend that she should never have been sent home without everything in place and MIL replied that she, “was sent home because they were sterilising the ward.” She has again said she “just wants to lay down and die.” I could weep.
