It was just on the telephone. CH is not in total lock down which surprises me but they are offering Skype calls - I just need to download Skype.That’s good news They will all want /need the business once we get back to a more even keel , glad they were accommodating , a confused but happy mum sounds ok. Can you Skype mum or just normal phone call ?
Thx @annielou it is certainly is a sh***ty cruel disease. It is hateful when they (pwd) are crying like a small child as they are so scared. Thanks for the hugs.Oh dear @Bikerbeth what a hard day for you and mum. Its just so hard to hear all these worries they have when they aren't real isn't it. No wonder you cried after she hung up, like you say its not your mum saying those things and being angry at you but it feels like it and its also as upsetting that she feels like that too.
It sounds like you did a good job of calming her down on the second call and it was nice of activities coordinator to let you know she had settled down later to put your mind at rest.
It is so upsetting though that she has been upset over something that is her mind playing tricks mixing things up and she doesn't need to be upset about. Its a s###ty cruel disease that hurts our loved ones and also us. Big virtual hug for you both .
I hope the downstairs room suits your mum and she enjoys the garden and settles .
