I have just received a message from one of my former clients daughters, who has recently made the decision to move her mother to residential care after much deliberation and mixed feelings.
It was a hard decision and very emotional, as she knew her mum loved her own place, but as Sylvia was becoming more and more isolated, and her well-being was becoming compromised, she accepted a place at a local residence not far from her home.
Today, Sylvia has rekindled her interest in art, and her daughter now knows that she has made the right decision to keep her mums spark ignited and her spirit strong, as well as encouraging new relationships and being part of a community of people that love her.
The move to Residential Care can be difficult to contemplate. If you are struggling with how and when to do this, please know that I am here to support you.
This also coincides beautifully with My collaboration with Art Therapist Maree, who will be holding Art Expressions sessions at my place in Two Rocks from the 24th of April.
With much love, Bianca
