After a very bad few days (mum phoning at 1am in a right state looking for missing children said she had been up and down the road looking for them. Next day convinced house not hers then taking too much lactulose and having a no.2 accident when we went out with the dog) we decided we needed to consider full time care. The home I like is on lock down this week due to sick bug and has no spare rooms but said mum can do days (as many as we like). I am hoping this will get her used to the staff and residents and help when she does go in full time. Has anyone else experience of this and if it helps? Was relieved when they said they had no rooms as mum was fine today, up and dressed and doing the ironing when I got there. She is so up and down but I don't want her to do something silly in the night and put herself in danger but don't want to put her into a care home when she is quite good still some days.
