Hi All,

What a great site ..... a little help from others if possible, we have to move my mum to a new home as she now needing nursing help as well as emi, I want to make this as stress free as possible for her as she really does not cope well with any form of change or people she does not recognise. Any practical suggestions would be very gratefully received.

Many thanks LynnB

Thanks Connie

Thanks for both the personal message and the reply, I really appreciate the kind words, its not a great situation but even though my mum doesn't remeber my name she always gets up and say's "I've been waiting for you to come" so somewhere in all her confusion she knows my face and knows she loves me even if she doesn't know "Who" I am, and that keeps me going and fills me with some happiness.
