I have posted several times before about my mum, bruises and m opinion of dad's inability to cope. Things have come to a head now with mum in hospital with 4 severe injuries to her face, dad saying she has fallen. Whatever the causes, soc servs have becmoe involved and I think, and hope, they will not allow her home. Problem is, my dad still reluctant to accept this, despite all that has happened. Care home possibly available nearby. Has anyone had experience of a parent going into a care home and how the spouse, or carer has coped as well as the sufferer. Mum is very confused in hospital, knows who we both are and says she wants to go home. It's so awful. She's not that bad that she isn't aware of where she is but on the other hand, can't grasp where she is and why she's there, in hospital. How does the transition work and how will she cope still know she's nto at home?
