Could it be hay fever? I have got it for the first time in 30 years.Thanks for your replies @Woo2 @Starting on a journey xx
Not sure if there's anything memory clinic can or will do but if they ring again as said would recently then I'll tell them about mum ringing more etc and see what they say and if it keeps on getting more frequent or she gets more upset I'll ring them myself.
Hoping mums cold is getting better today and she's had some sleep and feeling ok when I go over in a little bit and then I can let carer come this afternoon.
Apparently the tree pollen is out of this world at the moment (highest levels in 70 years?!) so I would suggest it's more likely to be hayfever! Problem with hayfever being that you can take the nasal spray or tablets but they take a while to kick in so if it's only mild, it may pass in a few weeks anyway. And of course hayfever can cause a cough, too, which is extra annoying and worrying.Amazing how we can still get colds when we are in isolation. I’ve had sniffles all week
Yes play dumb and let the carer take the lead and suggest - whether they entertain mum or get her to go for a nap or help with the clean up operation. Good luck!Thanks for your replies @Sarasa @imthedaughter @Woo2 xxx and the good advice I really appreciate it and will take it on board and contact memory team if don't hear from them soon.
I got caught up trying to get house clean while trying to stay on mums good side that I haven't had time to ring carers and cancel todays. They're due in an hour so bit late now.
I'm panicking now that Mum will probably go mad when realises coming. Don't know whether to play dumb now and let her turn up and say to mum I forgot coming today when she arrives.
I have managed to dust and hoover everywhere, cleaned carpet, cleaned bathroom and mopped bathroom floor so house smells of polish and bleach not poo now, but her quilt and mattress topper are still on line wet through and won't be dry before carer comes. We won't be able to make bed back up before she comes and I hope they do dry today. I'm not sure how mum will go on with making it herself and if will do it with carer there as she doesn't like them to do things with her.
I suppose I'll just have to see what happens and hope for best as can't do much else now.
