Does anyone have any thoughts about the pros and cons of a live in carer vs a care home? Mum was diagnosed 2.5 years ago and lives on her own with carers am and pm to help her with meals and bathing. Recently she has become very confused about her keys - how they work, how to lock or unlock the door etc - and I am concerned that she is not secure in her home and is even more vulnerable as a result. She is tearful and anxious a lot of the time. A care home would solve some of these problems, but I don’t think she is ready to move to a single room in a care home having lived on her own for so long. I wonder if a live in carer would be the solution, although she increasingly finds it difficult to get on with people so it might make things worse rather than better. I am struggling to find a solution to a stage (not needing full support, but needing a lot more than she currently has) that might be relatively short term. Would it be better to move her to a much safer environment sooner rather than later?
