    My mum is going to go and stay with my brother for a few days.
    The last time that she and my Dad went away, I picked out half a dozen complete outfits and put them in separate pillow cases so that she could work her way through them and know she had a complete set of clothes for each day. Another time, I took photos of her in the outfits and printed it out so she could remember what went together...it's not a big deal to me if she wears funny things but she gets quite anxious about it all and the order of putting things on etc so I want her to have a fighting start whilst she's away. Does anyone have any top tips for this? Thanks

    I do like the pillow case idea. I would never of thought of that one.
    In answer to your question, how helpful is your brother? Maybe he can simply sort it out his end?

    I think Mum would really like to try and give it a go - she has said the last few mornings that she wants to practice it and I have only stepped in when she has got her knickers in a twist, literally! But you are right, help will be at hand...
