Hi, Mum is definitely doing the respite then will be admitted to the CH after the respite period. She's not functioning on her own anymore with any day to day tasks and she had a fall last week and ended up in A & E and it's now blaringly obvious she needs 24/7 care. We are so upset that when she leaves for respite she won't be coming back to her home, but it's going to be for the best. We I can't imagine not being with her as much as me and my sisters are now, but don't know if it's healthy. Do we need to step back when she's in the care home or should we just carry on as normal. We have her assessment this afternoon and then we go from there. Feeling so very sad, still feel like we've let mum down as we promised we wouldn't do this but we never imagined she would end up how she is.
