Unfortunately the time is coming close when Mum will have to go into a nursing/care home as she cannot continue to live safely in her own home. When we are not with her she is very lonely and very tearful and unfortunately, we can't be with her every hour of the day although my sister and I visit every day. The nursing homes we have investigated have EMI units but when we visited, all the ladies appeared to be comatose and we feel mum still needs stimulation/converstion - which is something she won't get in an EMI unit. If any of you have your own experiences to relate, we would be very grateful. Like some posts I read yesterday, mum trusts us implicitly and we just want to do whats right for her although it will break our hearts. Maudie.
