Two steps forward and 20 steps back
The forward steps were Meals on Wheels, and getting Mum's hair cut and washed after years! She looked like her old self (which of course she is not, but I enjoyed that for the day). The back slide, after that false dawn, is that she's now confusing night and day - thought 6.30pm was 6.30am when I rang yesterday and was in bed. Its the last "straw" for me supporting her staying at home by herself - my sister and I are now shifting gear into finding a residential facility to move her to. Heaven only knows what bumps and skids in the road that will throw up, but I am now determined (with my heart in my mouth).
