Hi, My Mum has Altzeimers but is physically pretty well and doesn't need nursing care. she needs to be kept an eye on and cooked for. she gets very confused and is not able to retain information. she still recognises close family. My Dad who is very active is finding it very challenging to be caring for her and is desperate for a break. Until now he has been able to leave her and the dog for long weekends etc but she shouldn't really be left for long periods now. Does anyone know of any respite holidays or care homes that are more like holidays than a nursing home. it seems very hard to fins somewhere. they live in South Wales and also the Lake district for part of year. Any ideas???
