Mum is slowly setting into her new home, her only conversation is to ask to be taken home but I am learning how to deal with it, have taken in a 'porta puzzle' board as she used to love to do jigsaws, we have started on a small 500 piece which used to be her favourite, she is happy for a few minutes trying to pieces together. I find it easier if we have something to take her mind off going home. I have watched her without her realising before I go in and she seems quite content. she loves the staff and they are very attentive so I feel we have indeed made the right decision. She will be starting here Aricept this evening and I was wondering if anyone has any experience of it, I know it may not work or the side effects may be unpleasant but it may just work (please god) and give her some peace for a while. Does anyone have any idea when we may start to seem some change?
