After an initial good couple of weeks in care mum is now very miserable and wants to do back to her 'proper home'. Dad has not been happy the whole time mum has been there but as mum seemed OK initially I have been forcing the issue to keep her there because we had been really struggling to care for mum at home. Dad visits every day and the last few days have just been a continuous 'why can't I go back with you' type conversation. There is no way dad will keep away from the home, so not worth suggesting that. Today I did get dad to do a short visit only so I could try to cheer mum up which I have always managed before but got nowhere. Really tempted to take her back home now, but wonder if anybody else experienced this pattern and is it likely to improve?
