Hi Everyone My mum has been on Aricept for the last 3 yrs - but its effect seems to have stopped during the last 3 months, so I feel we are now entering yet another scary stage!! Due to mum's deteriorating condition (she has taken to receiving "messages" from all and sundry and spends hours in conversation with these unknown callers!!) and to provide some much needed respite for my dad (aged 81) we have now involved Social Services who have suggested Day Care once or twice a week. My mum is adamant she is not going, and can't understand why it may be needed. (She believes that she still does all the household chores etc when in effect she is unable to complete any task.) The introductory visit is next Wednesday and I will be taking her - how do I coax her to attend? Do I "fib" about where we are really going ?? Which I feel really bad about - but don't think I will be able to cope with a major scene prior to taking her. Will she get used to going on a weekly basis? Any help/advice would be appreciated - also has anyone used day care successfully?
