Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Oh my goodness ,thank you, I didn't know about black but it really makes so much sense!. I know that in the evenings I need to keep bright lights on( I am a candle and table lamp girl) because otherwise mum thinks it is night. Now it is so light early in the mornings we need black out curtains otherwise she is up with the lark and dressed by five oclock!
Shiney floors, like in hospitals look wet so a person with dementia with stiffen up in case they slip and that itself can cause a fall! One tip I had was to have darker tones on walls if you have a pale carpet, mine are cream and the walls were coffee and cream and mum cant work out where the floor ends and the walls begin!

Its the start of another day here and mum sounds a bit wheezy so when her carer comes I will see if I can get a Doctor's appointment as it is a holiday Monday and I don't want to go three days without her seeing a Doctor?

Once the lovely carer arrives I am off to the salon to be an aromatherapist for the morning, soft music, scented candles, so I am able to escape for a while each day, so don't worry about me :-)

Sailing on,
