Gran's here for Christmas as usual. Unfortunately her dementia has progressed to the point that she really has no idea what is going on. She fell asleep at the dinner table, I'm told, and was so completely disoriented when she woke up. She was really distressed. I think she told mum that she might wee on the floor. Mum and I will be up probably most of the night just keeping an ear out for Gran waking up downstairs. Also I think Gran will be going back a day earlier than planned as it seems to be too hard fr her to be away from her flat. Mums making noises too about getting a lot more care going in. Gran is pretty stubborn about it, but its really worrying to see her like this.
She always says she loves coming to us and that it's like a home away from home. And the care company that we get in for her are always telling my parents that they should get Gran out more often. But next year I think we go to her for a few hours than try to bring her here. Too much stress for everyone involved.
