My mum went in to a care home 3 weeks ago. We told her she was going in to a special hospital. It had got to the point where she was no longer safe when left alone for even short periods , didn't know where she was and some of the time didn't know who her family were. It go to the point where we all agreed it was the best decision for her. The lady in the room opposite to her actually went to school with her so she has a friend. She seems to be eating well and is more mobile than she was. Still getting infections and had a fall last week so she looks like a bashed granny. It is going better than I expected and still early days.
