Hi everyone, I am new to the site, but have been getting great advice through all of your blogs. I was looking for a little advice myself. My mother of 77 yesterday moved into residential care, this was soooooo hard to do. She kept asking how long do I have to stay here and dont leave me. My mother has been a very independant woman all her life raising two children after my fathers passing 36 years ago. It has been very sad to watch this terrible disease take over our mothers life. My mother has lived in her own home all her life with just my sister and my uncle to help care for her alongside carers coming in to give her her medication. Basically we have came to a point where she now needs 24/7 care. The question I would like to ask is do I give her time to settle before my sister and I visit again? My daughter went to visit her last night and she cried when she seen her, although she then came round. Today she will have no one visit unless I go. I feel so bad about having to place her there in the first place I just dont know what to do for the best. The care home yesterday reccommended my sister and I dont come for a day or two. Please advice!!!
