Too early for care home?

" Thank for your saying Mum might thrive. She might. The second wave and lockdowns might be another reason to move. She might be isolated all winter. I'll see how it goes over the weekend."

It's better she be isolated in a place where proper care is available, than in a place where care is difficult, if not downright unsafe.

Hi @Bod

I might not have been in clear in what i meant. And it seems as though we are saying the same thing.

I meant, with lockdown Mum might be isolated at home, alone and therefore better off in residential care (with support on hand). Although, acknowledging that residential care might have other issues such as higher instances of covid.
