I think your plan to meet with the director sounds like an excellent one. It's a worry!!!

Hi Claire, thanks for responding to my thoughts. I did not know that about Alzheimers patients and am so glad your Mom is not experiencing that herself. Of course I do understand you could not call each time re the other lady; I'm sure the home would not be able to do that. I guess I was just thinking in terms of your first time going back after that incident. I think I was also wondering if the home has any security people around? That may sound strange but in US we have security staff in most hospitals and many nursing homes. And of course, I would feel the same as you - I would not want to deprive my Mom of the garden either! Plus it simply would not be fair for the both of you to have to change your time together because of this situation. I guess the only thing you can do is try to remain aware of your surroundings while you're there. I will keep you both in prayer! I hope you have a wonderful vacation week! emoticon emoticon
