Congratulations on your interview success, which hospital will you be working at? It might be local to me!
Your mum certainly is tough to keep on rallying and fighting back and it’s good that you have had the care plan updated. I was very lucky that Mums doctor was very proactive and always phoned me after a visit to mum if her meds were changed or if there was an infection or something. I think without that regular contact, I would have been even more anxious about Mum when she was EOL.
Her funeral is on Tuesday, it was delayed due to my nephews GCSE exams but allowed time for us to contact some of her old friends which was nice. I guess that will end our relationship with her lovely care home, I know some are coming to the funeral, but I will still continue to crochet lap blankets for them as I like to crochet in the evenings to stop me eating!
Good luck in your new job..
Thanks @Grannie G _ I don't know where this will all end but I do know that whatever happens I have seen my mum in a better light and all I can say is who knows what will happen next, because no one does. If only we had foresight? I do know my mum would be very much in the present if she could express that in more detail, and that is all that matters
Wise words, Grannie G and I wish more people would understand this. A nurse from the Memory Clinic upset my mum terribly by screeching at me "Your mum has dementia! She's not the same person!" .
So sorry to hear of the staff changes. Two carers have left the home where my husband is and I am keeping a close eye on replacements. I’m currently not sure if they are permanent. They seem ok thus far.I just got off the phone with a permanent member of saff and they have agreed with me they also are not happy with the new influx of agency staff who just seem utterly lost. So its time to put things in writing, no doubt I may get threatened with a notice, but at the end of the day this is being paid for by either the taxpayer or self funding residents and either way I just don't see it as value for money and frankly over the last several months I have noticed some concerning things. Here we go again -it seems its a never ending battle to get what is right for people with dementia and its always us the carers who have gone through hell and back that have to deal with it head on
