A couple of weeks befor Christmas mum got distressed, as she couldn't recognise her own home, her carer found her in the street, she was admitted to hospital and treated for a uti. While she was in hospital, she had a couple of mini episodes, where she would lie in bed clasping her fist close to her chest, pleading for the bad boys to stop hitting her. Mam started to recover and she was getting back to her old self, even though she would sit at the nurses station, ( she used to be a nurse) doing her job, last fri mam was deemed to be fit enough to be transferred to a dementia unit. Mam hated it, it was a mixed unit, and people would wander in and out off her room, Mum would beg me to take her home, & I felt she wasn't ready for some where like that, so I brought her home Yesterday. Today (this am) she was a little confused, but she was ok, this afternoon when I called, mam didn't recognise the house again, and wanted me to take her home, saying it wasn't her house, I'm at my wit's end as to what to do next. I always promised her I would never put her in a care home, and i don't want to, but I'm unsure how we will cope with this. Please has anyone got any advice for me.?
