My condolences @annielou . I had also hoped your mum might find some comfort and contentment in 24 hour care but now it seems that when she left her house that night she was leaving to start on another journey. She knew you in the recent weeks and I am sure felt your love and presence right until the end. You have been a wonderful advocate and daughter to your mum and she could not have asked for a more loving daughter or caring friend. You will miss her, I know. I hope you give yourself the time and grace to grieve but also to be proud of what you did for mum. The hard times, the difficult decisions are not something to fret over but to be proud of: you did the best you knew how, as we all strive to do.
Your mum is now free, may she rest in peace and may you find grace and comfort at this time. My thoughts are with you. And many, many virtual hugs.
I feel we have walked some of this path together. Take very good care as you take a new fork in the road.

I am so sorry to hear your sad news but relieved that your Mum has now left this chaos known as dementia and has found peace. I think we both came to this forum at about the same time and I always thought what a caring and amazing daughter you were to your Mum. You have been with her all the way and fought for her with so much love. Please be proud of yourself and I am so pleased to hear that you got to spend quite a bit of time with her towards the end.
Your hubby has also seemed so caring too so I hope he is wrapping you in a cloak of love to keep you going through this difficult time. Many hugs to you 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 and also to your sister.
Take care.

When you look back to how things were when you started this thread, I am so glad that your mum knew who you were again for the last few weeks of her life :)
I was thinking the exactly the same thing. I read your first post on this thread and I am really in awe at how you managed to keep supporting your mum throughout her dementia journey @annielou . You've been a total star, even if you've not always been sure of it yourself.
I hope you are doing OK and getting the support you need from you husband and sister.
