Hi, My Mum has got offered a place in a care home this week, its happened quite suddenly, so still getting used to the idea. She can move in as soon as Monday next week, providing her assessment goes well tomorrow. My problem is that my sister wants her to go for respite while we are both away from Saturday 26th May. Me for a week, and my sister for a month. My sister wants her to go in while I'm away (for resoite) and then return home, before moving in permanently. I don't think its a good idea for 2 reasons. 1. I think in Mums state of mind this will be highly confusing going there then coming back. 2. I dont think with my sister away, meeting her current needs will be nigh impossible for me alone. To be honest I am now getting very anxious about that possibility, should my sister insist on this. And I know it will affect my mental health. How can prevent this? Do you think the Care home/social worker would echo my concerns?
