I visit as often as I can and take her out for a trundle in the wheelchair when the weather permits. She does not really cope with long visits now, so I usually only go for one to two hours. She had another fall last week and has some cuts and bruises from that. She is remarkably philosophical about this – although often she also does not remember that she has fallen. Her walking is still not good and she is quite dependent on carers to take her wherever she needs to go within the home.
It is a lot less stressful for me knowing that Mum is safe, eating well and looked after. I hope she will make real friends in the home eventually and feel that it is more than tolerable.
