In March my Mother will be 85. For the last few years she has been suffering with vascular dementia and has slowly become more confused. We have taken the decision to move her into a lovely home in Devon where she lives. This home is for people suffering with dementia. My brother is an architect and carried out the conversion on this beautiful building.
We are just waiting for a room to become available.
Mum doesn't really understand that this is going to happen and we are praying that the transition will be a smooth one for her. With us living four hours drive away and my sister (not sure if I have ever blogged about the story of how my sister found us) even further away in Wales, all local jobs are left for my brother.
For my Mothers birthday I have made a photo book of photo's taken over the years.
I thought I would share a few with you.
