Hi just thought that I would let you know that Lex has been admitted for 14 days respite care. It has broken my heart, but I realised after the weekend it was his sanity or mine. It is for 14 days at this stage, but they are going to re-assess him after 10 days and take it from there. The re-assessment will involve his Case Manager, the dementia wing staff and me. I have been told not to visit for 5 days to allow him to settle in, but I can phone and speak to the staff at any time I feel the need. I phoned the specialist at the hospital at 9.45 this morning and everything was in place by lunchtime, including the fact that he would be taken to the respite facility by the care-givers at his daycare centre (he goes Tuesdays and Thursdays). This avoids him tagging me with the big bad ogre who admitted him tag. I am just soooo tired, but whether or not I sleep tonight is anyone's guess.
