Mum is still living alone, a 5 minute walk away, with support in most areas. We manage, just about. I saw her this morning, got her on track, and have then had my own appointments. I took her a meal up toward 5pm and, not for the first time, found her looking very anxious. The fire was on, and she had all radiators going full blast too. It was so hot! Yet she complained of feeling so cold, wringing her hands, almost agitated. When you stand close to her, you can clearly hear her breath 'shaking'. Like chattering teeth, but done with her breathing. Like a 'dithering'. This isn't the first time I have noticed this ..it's usually in the evening, yet she doesn't do this on evenings she eats here ... She did look so worried, but when I enquired, she said it was just the headcold, as usual. Thought it would be worth a mention in case anyone else had had the same. Today wheels were set in motion re Day Care, beginning with one day per week. It all depends on what is available for Mum's stage, so fingers crossed.
