Would be so grateful for any advice please. Our lovely Mum has quite advanced dementia but has awareness a lot of the time. She has just started end of life care in the good care home where she has been for several years. We love her so much and are gutted and struggling ourselves, but understand why she is where she is and that it is for the best. The nursing and care are very good. We're grateful that the staff love her, but she is being visited by a stream of well meaning staff all through the day whenever they come off their shift or have a spare moment - in pairs, on their own, coming back several times in a day, coming in/trying to come in when Mum is getting religious visits or we are trying to calm her waiting for pain relief to set in, or having some precious moments together. Only one or two have the sensitivity to ask first before coming in and starting to hug her/kiss her/one even climbed onto her bed around me to kiss her all over her face while I was trying to talk with her. It's one thing that we don't feel free to have the time we'd like with her, but the worrying thing is that she is being told by some of them "keep fighting - we love you" and Don't give up - we love you" and "we miss you - get well soon" or they get emotional in front of her or tell us/each other how sad they are within earshot of her. The situation feels totally out of control. This evening she got totally exhausted and very restless/agitated after a day of this and several people being in and out of her room for a couple of hours without a break. She had to be given medication for agitation. The trouble is that they nearly all seem to be doing it. We understand that it's a shock for them as well as for us, and we don't want to upset anyone because they do a great job and we know they are attached to her, but we're worried that Mum isn't getting the peace she needs and deserves.
