Just wondered if anyone has any advice. Started mum with a carer for 1 hr each evening for a bit of company ( she gets anxious in the evenings and often imagines cats, missing children, not her home etc). My sisters hoped it would help. It is only day 2 but she seems more anxious, monday night she was phoning me up at 9pm ( she would normally have been in bed by then) saying the front door wasn't locked. She couldn't accept that no one could open it from outside. Tonight she phoned after he had left saying she doesn't like the carer ( it is a man and it will be him nearly all the time) he isn't her cup of tea. Then at 9 she phoned again very anxious looking for 3 missing children. Not sure what to do, I was worried that all it would do was push her anxiety period from 7pm till later. My sisters have the ideas but I have to implement them, do all the phone calls and organising, then pick up the fall out from mum. Do I stick with it and see if she improves? Do I ask if she can have a different person? Do I cancel it all together? Any advice greatly appreciated.
