Hi Piglit. Thank-You for responding to issues regarding my mother's problems. What you said about keeping to daily routeins is so true. When she makes any kind of transition she becomes more confused and confrontational. She lives alone, but I think her days are pretty well structured. My best times with her are usually one on one at her house for a visit. Yesterday I took her out to a movie. The movie was lighthearted with lots of dancing ( ' Step Up Revolution ' ) and a sweet love story. She had a wonderful time ! I will take your advise and get more support for my own well being. Best Wishes, Paige @piglit

Hi Paige Thank you for the kind reply. I'm glad that your Mum enjoyed the movie. I also have visited people who live alone in their homes with dementia and their visit from their family and going out is a very special time for them. Glad your taking my advice of looking after yourself and getting more support, you will feel the difference. Take care always here if you need me Piglit
