I just wanted to say hello to everyone and wish everyone the best for the new year. I haven't posted for ages but have read posts and have gone to reply - but my replies always sounded so pointless and stupid. I have been thinking of you all though. I haven't posted for a while because my Grandma went into a home earlier this year. It was a very stressful time, especially as she went straight there from hospital. However, looking back it was a very good thing. Our main problem was that she constantly wanted to walk outside and got extremely angry if people tried to stop her. Now, although she wants to get out of the home ,she no longer seems to get too angry with anyone. Anyway, it certainly hasn't been easy or straightforward but I just wanted to let anyone who is facing this type of decision that for us, it has definitely been the best decision. She is settled, well looked after and as happy as possible I think. She comes to my Mum's or my Aunt's most weekends for lunch and although she's only out for a couple of hours, seems to enjoy it.
