What with me breaking my wrist, then the Christmas/New Year holidays, I haven't had much of a chance to decide just how often I would visit MH. I know it nearly killed my only being able to visit once a week while in plaster. There has been the distance and cost to consider also. On a recent visit, the RN suggested I only go once a week, but I don't think it was for any particular reason. I think she might have thought it was too big a task for me, but I'm ok with it. It has occurred to me that MH, dementia or not, is moping because I'm not there. I was his whole world and he is mine and he lights up when he sees me arrive with dog in tow. I am currently thinking that I will visit every 4 days. I actually wish I lived in the same town and would like to work in the rest home in a volunteering capacity, but that is going to take some organisation, if it happens at all. How often do others visit their LO or can you give your opinions on my intentions? I suspect I want to visit this frequently as much for my own needs as well as MH.
