    Mum has finally agreed to go to respite care while we visit our daughter in Thailand.
    I can hardly express how relieved I feel. We had a week in Scotland a couple of months ago and within 2 days of us leaving she got taken to hospital afer being found wandering - and the day afer she came home she let some scumbag ino her house " to mend the bathroom" who stole her purse. She has been so resistant to going to care despite the fact that she constantly moans about how lonely she is - forgetting within minutes when you have been to see her. It's such a relief to know that she is going to be somewhere safe while I'm away - thoughI'm terrified that by tomorrow she'll have forgotten that she has agreed to go!

    Fingers crossed, stick to your plan and keep reminding her that she agreed to respite.

    Could respite, become permanent?
