do you ever feel like your banging your head against a brick wall? as a family, we have recently taken the plunge and admitted that we can no longer cope keeping mum at home. she is 76 and is in the middle stages of dementia, so of course she wanders, has moods, and throws tantrums. bags packed and grumbling all the way, she moved into a local home january this year, a month later they decide that they cannot allow her to stay as she is too disruptive. so follows 2 days of hecticness, and mum swiftly packed up and moves to a home further away. we are optimistic having been advised that this is a more suitable place. two weeks have past and we have just received a call to say that they also cannot keep mum because of her behaviour. i know that this is probably only the beginning of what could turn out to be a very repetative problem, but it is so demoralising. mum was a proud, kind woman, she loved (loves) her family and deserves better than to be shunted from pillar to post just because she can no longer understand social correctness. i feel so helpless right now.
