I'm going on holiday soon and I'm really worried about what to do with mum. I think she'd be safer going into a respite care home but how on earth do I get her there? Should I just take her on the day and leave or should I try to explain to her what's happening and hope she doesn't get awkward or upset? There's no one else who could stay with her and there's a chance she'll go 'walk-about' if left at home with only the home-help coming in twice a day for a half hour visit. Can anyone give suggestions about how they handled this situation?
