thank you @Bikerbeth, yes i do have support from an alz. soc. dementia navigator and she suggested dial-a-ride. he can get on a bus but there are no bus routes from ours to get to the group. as its the first thing he has ever said yes to, i will phone tomorrow. i will ask my son as well afterwards. he didnt react so much as it was his sister and not my son. ive told me son to keep away from water. tomorrow, ive just a small cabinet to do which completes the living room. its only small and i can sit at the same level so no bending. wont take long. hoover and iron his clothes so i have a light day. then i have saturday off which is the aim. i need to potter as i get stiff in one position. im going slower and listen to my back rather than fighting with it.I am sorry to hear that you did not get your ‘day off’ today. I know sometimes it can’t be helped when people offer you a break and you get your hopes up and then they get dashed it can be more upsetting. I too hope that Saturday happens.
Do you have a local Alzheimers group, because with Mum they gave her a leaflet with ‘volunteer drivers’ in that only charge for petrol? I guess similar scheme to the one Ganymede suggested.
Glad your pain level has reduced a bit today. I know you have things that need to be done but could you give yourself a bit more of a rest.
