My mother is 96 next week, has Alzheimers and had a stroke 12 months ago resulting in her placement in a care home as she was expected to die within weeks. She fought back from the brink twice and proved all the doctors wrong. Apart from leaving her more or less incontinent there are no physical signs of stroke remaining. I feel so guilty that she is in a care home and now that she realises it herself she just wants to come home. She doesn't really believe me when I say she can go home when the doctors says she's better. I would love to take her home for a visit but I fear she would refuse to go back. Has anyone any experience of handling this type of scenario? How did you cope?
