I work in care and there was a woman there for nearly four years with me, she had learning difficulties and then dementia. I have visited her a few times as she doesn’t really get visitors and would like to go again but would it be better if I didn’t?
Because of the level of her dementia she will not think of me until she sees me, we got along very well, when I turn up she remembers me and then the home she lived in and maybe it is unfair to bring these memories back. The last time she didn’t want me to leave.
I don’t know whether it will do more harm than good to see her, I don’t know how she feels after I have gone or maybe it is worth it for her?
