Took Mum today to check out a Daycare programme which runs Mon to Fri 8am-5pm, and Mum would be allocated a number of days and hours, depending on her health and social needs. This is run through our local hospital for over 60's that have varying health needs but predominatley dementia. They take max 25 people. It provides morning tea, a cooked lunch, afternoon tea, and transport to and from if needed, and is all free. Mum seemed to respond well. She introduced herself, with a little about herself, as did the group with the carers overseeing, when each person couldn't remember certain facts. Even Mum could not remember where abouts in Scotland she was from, and how long ago she emmigrated to New Zealand. One lady had had a stroke and in a wheelchair so her speech was quite slow, another man and lady with definite dementia, 3 others with heart issues and so on. Mums response when we left " Oh I don't think I will go there, they all have something wrong with them and a few of them are off their head"..... Unless I went with her Mum does not have a lot of confidence, and I know she is quite oblivious as to her own AD and health issues. If she attends on a Monday at least I can drop her off and pick her up... What should I do? I have to apply for funding and allocation of days through our hospital which may take 2 or 3 weeks, but don't want to waste time, if it means somone else could be going.
