Well my mother in law has had radiation and can’t go back to her retirement village as she will be unable to care for herself. So we have been waiting for a spot to come up in aged care, and that has finally happened. She basically has no short term memory now and her long term memory gets muddled at times.
My husband writes things down for her so she can read it when we are not there when she gets confused. She is getting moved to the aged care facilities next week. it’s a beautiful place and only 10 minutes from us so we can visit more often

  • hopefully she adjusts fine to her new surroundings. hope her memory improves too.


  • Nice that she will living so close by to you. I wish her all the best in the new place. It must be a very hard time on everyone. It must be horrible to have memory problems.


  • Truly hope the aged care facility works out well for you all. Its so very hard at times like these. Enjoy your times together.
