I have just spent the last 2 hours at my mum's care home. She has been there since January and whenever I go in the afternoon she wont sit still and is wandering around all the time so usually I only stay for half an hour at the most. Having taken advice on here, thanks to all, I bought various sing a long cds with old familiar songs on and my mum and her friend, with other residents popping in and out have spent 2 hours listening and singing and even dancing to Twist Again. It is brilliant that I have managed to spend so much time with her sitting in one place. I feel exhausted singing along to songs I dont really know for 2 hours but they really enjoyed it so I'm happy that I've done something worthwhile. Just wanted to share something joyful.
