Hi everyone. I haven't posted for a while. To be honest I'm struggling to cope. Mum lives on her own with 3 Carer visits a day. My sisters and I support her the rest of the time but not overnight. Mum doesn't want to go in to a home and we are desperately trying to find ways to support her decision. However she went outside early this morning (snowing!). No coat or gloves! Door alarm people rang me and I went round to find her outside. This is not the first time. Sometimes she "wants to go home". Today she was hungry and needed to get food in for the other people that come in! I think she meant the carers as she lives on her own. Mum is not self funding. Do social services help fund overnight care does anyone know. I'm just a mess of worry at the minute and don't know what to do.
