So, I’ve been to the doctors and she’s put me on an anti depressant. I’ve come realise that I can’t do it all, take on all the responsibility as I did when Bridget was at home. There’s only so much any one person can take. The care home is registered for challenging behaviour as well as dementia so let them manage it. I pay enough.Many thanks all for your reassurances. And for replying so very quickly.
I’m hyper sensitive at the moment having not had much experience of this sort of thing.
Some of my thoughts are about — if I’m not at the home what’s happening with Bridget, then when I go in and see her it’s all one sided and she’s agitated and sitting there and I get restless. I mean, it’s a merry go round of stress. She not settled yet, hopefully she will.
Going to see the home’s doctor later with Bridget and staff to talk about a possibility of her having constipation ( they haven’t seen anything in the weeks she’s been there). Surely they should be checking this? Do I have to do everything?
Thanks once again for your support
