My mum is 89 and has been diagnosed with Dementia. It's been getting worse over the last few months and both myself and my brother work full time and we have had to move her into a care home this week. She is usually very active and is getting very bored and distressed. We have been telling he that this is just respite and she seems to think she will be coming home . It's very upsetting for all of us and I just wondered if anyone could give me some advice on how to deal with this. She is not settling and I feel like bringing her back home . Should we give it more time to allow her to settle ? Just feeling so guilty at the moment but when she is at home, she doesn't sleep and doesn't have any concept of time. This is a problem when we stay as she is up half the night and it's very difficult when we have to go to work. We cannot leave her alone for a moment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated .
