Ideas welcome please on how to "sell" day care to PWD? The overwhelming consensus of opinion seems to be to utilise Day Care, both to benefit the PWD and to give the carer a break. As we still have so much work to do on the house and there's going to be a heck of a lot of admin to be sorted out here for Mum, I'm going to need time to deal with all this. I'm fortunate in that there's a dementia specialising day care centre about half an hour away by car, open Mon-Fri. The plan is to have Mum go there maybe 2 or 3 days a week. So, what do you call it?! Also, I've been advised that establishing a routine is important, as far as possible. Mum arrives to live with us on a Thursday. Should I try to start the day care visits say the following Tuesday? Probably impossible to plan that as I've no idea how unsettled she's going to be at first... Anyway, ideas and thoughts please and thank you.
