Rang my Mum in her care home after lunch and she was crying and saying she wished she could run away or just be dead. She is really low today. I haven’t seen her since before lockdown. It is so upsetting for her and me and it ruined my afternoon. The carer was with her and said she is really upset today and refused lunch which I have never, ever known her do before.
I will probably ring the staff after tea tonight and see if she is more settled. They said they took her outside in the garden today and she was so upset and just cried so they brought her in again.
I am really hoping very soon I can visit her at least in the gardens there. They have had no cases of CV with any residents or staff. If people can now meet others in an open space or their garden it’s about time care homes did the same. This must be unbearable for her.
