Dementia: A Taste Of Honey

Yesterday was a good day. Knowing that Maureen  was in safe hands I was able to spend time with my own family.  I had a lovely time with my mum, brother and daughter along with her delightful children.

I return to Cleethorpes this morning refreshed and optimistic about the future.  Maureen now needs 24 hour care, something that cannot be sustained within our home. Yesterday I made telephone contact with some  of the professional staff who support us on our journey to suggest a possible way forward.

A Blog is not the place to show your hand when discussions are ongoing.  However, I’m confident that arrangements can be made that protect the Best Interest of a very happily married couple.
