Thanks for the posts xxxxxHi @annielou , how are you ? How’s things been today ? Mum went to day centre this morning , I was ridiculously cheerful and sold it as they needed volunteers , she said to them “what days do you want me “ she helped the others doing puzzles , some art and sat and had tea n toast , I had to get her to bring her home . I’m not presuming that it will be like this every time though , just grateful first time went well . Back on Monday which I’m pleased about as it’s not too big a gap. She started sundowning though and I knew it would wear her out and she has just disappeared off to her room . Hope your day has been ok ? X
Thanks for the posts xxxxx
So glad to hear the daycentre visit went well that's really positive well done. i hope it continues to go well X
That is actually not bad to start with. I would grab everything that is offered and just make it happen.will be 4 week respite as before, possibly 2 or 3 x 30 minute carer visits and possibly a day at day centre (we'd have to pay about £10 towards it) and a referal to the voluntary service for a befriender visit once a week.
Hi i read your updated post just wanted to say you haven't made your mum dependent shes not independent shes got blooming dementia sw just not properly informed about dementia! !
