My Mum's support team have been trying to persuade her to go to a Day Hospital once a week. Dr advised so that it was so that they could monitor her better. Mum lives alone with moderate AZ and has meal time carers going in every day. She would never want to go to a group thing when well so I am not surprised she won't go now. She enjoys her house and I think it is all that is holding her together. In a strange environment I think she would not do well at all and she would have the huge worry of getting ready and out of the house at a given time. Does anyone have good experiences of such things. I am sure they provide respite for a carer but am concerned that the whole process would just add confusion to an already confused old lady who wants to get by at home. She is always telling me that she wants the carers to go away and stop telling her what to do.
