I'm sure you are right in not asking Martin too many questions as that can be stressful in itself.I don`t know. I`m loathe to ask anything more then `how has the day/night been` because Martin is so stressed.
I`m hoping the carers and nurses who attend can intervene.
Only if that's what you would prefer.I went through a similar experience with my sister,different though because she was not at home.It is distressing.I think from reading all the posts regarding your friend that others who count themselves as her friends are grateful to you for keeping them informed.Thanks Loo and Lyn.
Earlier Helen face timed susiesue , an ex TPer and friend, and poor Sue was shocked by the call and of course it being face time, shocked by Helen`s appearance.
Helen has just phoned me.
She said she is getting no care , one of her legs is broken which is why she can`t stand, and she thinks she has dementia.
She wants hospice care.
Alan`s granddaughter arrived and spoke to me. Helen was like this yesterday which explains Martin`s nightmare. Martin is waiting to talk to Mandy when she arrives back tonight from work and a decision will be made.
I realise my updates are becoming more and more distressing. If anyone thinks I should stop posting about Helen I will.
Sue, I think Sylvia was telling us what Helen is imagining at present. She is receiving as good care as is possible, but is seemingly delusional due to either brain deterioration or strong medication. She hasn't broken her leg, it is in her imagination.Sylvia thank you for your updates.
Poor Helen and her family having to go through this with her without proper care. She does need continued hospice care and I hope that is realised for Helen and the family.
My mother had a leg break in the latter stages too, it is so distressing and it sounds as if Helen, somewhere still has full awareness of what is happening to her making it all so much harder for her and everyone to see.
You must feel very torn Sylvia, about to go away and the situation as it is, Helen though would not want to hold you back. I hope you have a safe journey and a restful time with your friend.
Continually thinking of everyone involved
