Respite for 5 days...If anyone has the opportunity to give yourself a break like I did, do it.

Started by

My mom was placed in a Hospice house for 5 days of respite. Oh how wonderful it was to sleep for one whole night. I woke up so refreshed. If anyone out there has the opportunity to give yourself a break like I did...do it. It will make things easier in the long run. Mom adjusted fine to the Hospice house and was sleeping when I left. I will check on her..but I will enjoy my rest also.

I am so glad for you. You deserve a break. I hope more people will take advantage of this. Glad your mum has adjusted. It may even be good for her to be around different people for a while. Enjoy the YOU time, treat yourself... ((((((Hugs)))))) Joan
