I have made a decision to only visit Mum (96) when I'm calm and got plenty of time.

I'm sitting here with my mum. I have made a decision to only visit when I'm calm and got plenty of time. WOW! How different our time is. I now bring photos to look through iPad with here and that seems to decrease repetitiveness. Seriously when I'm patient and go into her world. Our visits are so much better. I'm in uk. This forum is so brilliant.

Wonderful that you've found a way to make your visits meaningful!
You've made a very good point here Nellie. Thanks.
Thanks for your response. It's really portent to be honest with ourselves and visit when it's Good for us because then it's GREAT for them. How do we know what they intuitively pick up from our visits? So I say toy siblings. Visit when you feel you want to. Not fr duty.
