The CPA meeting was held yesterday to discuss the future. Mum has a mixture of vascular dementia and Alzheimers and the doctors were firmly of the view that the only practical care package would be for her to be placed in a suitable residential care home. They feel that she has adapted so well to the environment in the unit that she will settle quite happily. I have to agree. Still it is hard. I feel such rage and sadness that this horrible illness has "stolen" and will continue to steal my mum from me. Perhaps the only consolation I can take is that mum was quite positive when interviewed by the care manager about "finding a little place not too far away from my daughter so that she can visit". My thanks go to the wonderful lady from the Alzheimers Society who has supported me throughout, came to the meeting with me and is helping me draw up a short list of suitable places which she has offered to visit with me. Her help and support has been absolutely invaluable.
