My first post This is my first post. I too had to steel myself but found it easer to watch than I thought it would be. It was informative and helpful, without causing too much heartache, although there was some. My Mum has been in and out of CHs since last June, when my Father found he could no longer cope with caring for her at home. He had carers going in daily, along with family support but as he was terminally ill (sadly we lost him Sept), it was just too much for him. Mum has lots of nursing needs as well as having vascular dememtia. I thought we had finally found a good NH in October near to where I live. I am at present having some concerns with her care as they are doing a great job on her nursing side but her dementia needs are being neglected. Two things that reached me from the programme was the music, Mum loves a CD player I took in at Christmas, and sadly the other was how I am feeling, that I am grieving now for Mum but she is still there. Thanks to the programe makers and to Kevin and John for sahring their pain with us.
