When my Mom went into her home I took all her rings home with me. At least I know where they are. It would be awful for you to go in one day and they are lost. Also Mom lost so much weight they would have fallen off at some point. Better to be safe than sorry. I know its awful and things change so much with this disease. Thinking of you.

take it home rather than lose it...can be worn on a chain round your neck? I would maybe replace it with a similar low cost ring and leave that in the care home with her.

Yes i agree. A new replacement and maybe engrave her name on the inside. Its a symbol so the value is not important- its the love that is priceless. Your a lovely man tony. Im tearing up here.
