So, my sister and I went to pick Mum up from the care home at the weekend to take her out for a coffee. We were going up the corridor and another resident was stood in the middle, just near the door to get out. We were stood alongside this resident and they said something and Mum just turned and gave them a good couple of thumps. It was very quick and actually shook me a up a little, especially the expression on Mum's face and the way she just "turned". To clarify, the home are aware that she can hit out, and she has done it before, and although it doesn't happen a lot she is on a 24-hour watch so they know where she is at all times. What I'm wondering is, how do you, or should you, react? It's the first time I've seen her do it, which is probably why it was a shock, and I didn't really say anything, but my sister said "no Mum, you mustn't do that" etc. But is there any point? It feels like something needs to be said, but does it?
