We decided not to trick Mum about the Day Centre this week and told her she was going. To my amazement she slept fine. Just can’t understand what has changed. She didn’t even seem overly stressed about getting ready this time.
I rang Social Services yet again today and still get the feeling that Mum’s file keeps going back to the bottom of the pile. I also rang a private Care Agency to see about their ‘sitting service’. A Care Manager is calling to see us tomorrow.
We are going to the GP tomorrow in response to a letter from the hospital following her fall. I need to ask him if there is anything we can do about her depression. She is already on a low-dose anti-depressant but I am wondering if we could increase this. She is bursting into tears at the drop of a hat lately, usually due to frustration because she can’t remember what she wants to say or because she just can’t get her words out.
