More developments with mum, her TIA's seem to be taking chunks each time they happen not just little bits. Had a bad weekend with her, first she broke something glass, and really did an amazing job of clearing it up so much so we have no idea what broke but she's ended up cutting all her arms as some tiny bits were in the washing up sponge and she sometimes cleans the dishes then cleans herself with the same sponge, all superficial but she's made a mess of her arms. Then the next day she's mistaken the laundry basket for the loo and she's fallen. Paramedics have checked her out and she's fine just sore but we now know it's time to maybe give in and start looking at homes. I hate this we promised her years ago we would do everything in our power to keep her at home and I feel I'm betraying her trust in us, but things seem to be speeding ahead in terms of deterioration. One place we've looked at so far is wonderful and is better than some hotels I've stayed in and smelled like a spa, but the cost is nothing the authorities would go anywhere near as mum has no assets. So the search continues. I've trawled the internet looking for anywhere that caters for 24/7 care so mum can stay in her own home, as mum has no savings to speak of and no assets are we just looking at care homes?? So very sad about this all.
