Dementia: Respite Begins Tomorrow

Image result for Respite Starts Tomorrow PictureAshgrove Care Home are not able to carry out their assessment of Maureen until 8.30  tomorrow morning.  This will then give me a couple of hours to try to personalise her room while she is being looked after by a carer.

I am awaiting confirmation from the Home Treatment Team that they will be able to provide support to ease Maureen’s transition into Ashgrove before noon.

I have had a long conversation with the Administrator of the Home this morning and  agreed that Maureen will be admitted initially for a week.  Our discussions have reassured me that Maureen will be in capable hands while I try to get some much-needed rest.

Her recovery from stroke has been exceptional apart from 50% loss of peripheral vision and vascular damage. 'Dharma For Dementia' is my approach to being Maureem's Care Partner: it aims to end the suffering of 'Prescribed Disengagement' (Swaffer) .
