There are always a lot of questions and answers on TP about the best way to get a dementia sufferer into a CH when they are determined that there is nothing wrong with them, and no way are they going to be 'put in a home'. It seems that a lot of you 'kidnap' Mum or Dad and tell them you are taking them out for tea or a meal etc, and them take then to the CH. But how do you do this without lots of preparation? Surely there must be some involved - labelling and packing clothes being the least of these. I was just wondering how you get around these things - I suspect that it won't be all that long before we have to do something similar for Mum.
