It is possible that my visit to see Maureen yesterday has unsettled her. The Care Home have been in touch this morning on another matter and told me that she was very disoriented last night and didn’t go to bed until 5 am. I have agreed to contact them after lunch to discuss whether to visit today.
Following a conversation with Melissa from the Home Treatment Team we have agreed not to celebrate Maureen’s birthday tomorrow. There seems little point in reminding someone who is waiting for warmer weather before she can don a skirt or thinks Christmas is around the corner that it is her birthday.
