Just picked this up, thank you, we go off on Tuesday at 9.30. We have a volunteer driver, the one who took us for the assessment.Thank you Alice. When are you going away?
I have really struggled this week, I felt overwhelmed by all the arrangements, on Friday I needed to chase the prescriptions, I could not get through to the chemist. A final straw! I burst into tears. My husband was at the morning respite, thank goodness!
I had forgotten how complex going away from home is. So much to think about.
My husband is wanting to go but as the anxiety level rises and the cooperation lowers. It has been difficult.
I am sure it will be good when we get there, I have warned I may just want to sleep! Our daughter called today and labelled a pile of possible clothes fo me. So I now have to choose and prune.
My decision making skill are wearing a bit thin, unlike me my clothes feel tight!
I have said I like light vegetarian meals, the place as it is Quaker managed should be used to vegetarians. I think it will help to have had this experience when I may have to accept the inevitable decision about care.
Adult services have not come up with the promised support, I will chase when I get back.
I am planning a week for my husband nearer to home so I can stay here and catch up quietly. Probably will raid savings again. This break had to be two weeks but I have found a place that will do one. That is while there is a spare room.
Thank you for your interest and concern. I cannot be long before your trip away. Xxx
