melting but not down

Lovely daughter went round to mum's last night. No broken bones from the morning's fall judging by the speed with which she zimmered into the kitchen to get her tablets! Mum pressed the Care Link button twice while LD was there and they contacted the on call doctor. When the doctor rang back, LD said she thought there was nothing seriously amiss with mum's mobility and that she was getting pain relief for her hip but would call for help if things deteriorated.

They did. In a different way.

I was in the shower ten minutes ago when my mobile rang. It was the home carer to say that mum refused to take her medication, was very confused, said she hadn't seen her daughter for weeks, didn't seem to realise she was in her own home and wanted to call her solicitor. Otherwise she was ok, lol. I've just left a message for the social worker to phone me at work later this morning. I think its time to get mum into a home. Wish me luck.

Luck to you Lily. You and your mom can't go on like this. It's not much of a life for either of you.
