I took my sister into respite for the first time today. it is a dementia unit attached to the care home. She was adamant that was not going although i told her it was just for a day or two while they checked how she was. when she got there she just looked at the other people (who were all asleep) and her face seemed to say what om earth am i doing here.I felt very guilty It was very sad to leave her there looking so sad but I know by tomorrow she will,have forgotten how long she has been there and just be asking when she is going home. hope she forgets its me who took her there , i expect she will. By the way the staff were very nice and said that everyone is like this when they come in- taht is they dont want to be there, but said she would be ok. Well we are off to tenerife in the morning, just have to try and forget everything.
