I have told my mom that I am going on vacation for over a month to prepare her that I will not see her one day from my usual schedule of seeing her. When I mentioned it to her the first time she was ok with it. Now that it's coming up this coming week she is getting all nervous and anxious.
I have written a note to the caregivers taking care of her for them to read to her from me. I also plan on calling her every evening as I do now. I have told her to let the caregivers help her change her socks daily and that she needs to keep participating in the scheduled activities. My bro and sis said they will each see her an extra day than they usually do. I wrote the days I will be gone on the note and asked the workers to cross off the days until I come back and show her how many days left until I return. On the day I come back, I circled it and printed it in red stating I'm visiting you tomorrow morning. I know they will read it to her and that she will enjoy the phone calls. Is there anything I am missing that I can do to make it as easy as possible for her? She really depends on me a lot as I'm the only child that really visits and spends time with her. I will give her, her shower on Tues. and visit Wed. then I'm off for five days. I will be back on the sixth day to visit her, as usual.
Any suggestions?????? Blessings
