So pleased you have found a way through all this. Really hope that your son can find some peace and acceptance too.

So lovely to hear how Peter has settled and that it has been a good decision for both of you. This will be a real comfort to others facing, and fearing, making the decision to use a care home. Thank you for telling us.

Thank you for that update - I know how heartbroken you were just before Peter moved to his care home and Im so glad that both of you have settled into it. Moving my mum into a care home was the best thing I could have done too.

Thank you everyone for you kind thoughts . I know I always said peter would never go in a home but no one knows how bad it will get when you make this promise to your love one , with all the good intentions you do your best to not let it happen but when it gets so bad that your health is getting bad you know you can’t go on anymore and you have to make the decision it is time for a home , it is the most heart breaking decision you will ever make , but when you see how they change you know you did the-right thing for them , peter is so much happier .christmas xxxx
