Dave, hi
Welcome back and it's good that you are here again.
So sorry that your mum isn't able to socialise at the moment and she is spending more and more time in bed.
Take care of yourself and keep us posted about how you are, best wishes, Jo

I don`t know dave because everyone is different. But I do know sufferers lose stamina and mobility towards the end of their lives so are probably more comfortaable in bed.
Take care xx

Morning Dave,

is this normal towards the end ?
If you have any doubt, it would be worth discussing this with the Manager/ess. One would assume there must be some reason that your mum is got up out of the bed for meals but then eats separate from the other residents!! It is worth checking for your own peace of mind.

Love and best wishes
