My mother is not coping at all, I have bitten the bullet and arranged for her to come to me . My sister is in the vulnerable group and mum won't accept help. She has stopped taking her meds, admits she can't be bothered to eat and is increasingly confused. My sister will bring her up, I think this is a reasonable travel need.

sounds reasonable to me. But is your mum healthy? I won't says she sounds as if she should be in a care home, obviously, but you're going to have quite a bit of work on your hands.
Well done Rowan. At least you can get her straight with her meds and diet, cheer her up a bit and get her back on her feet. think of it as a temporary break and you'll be able to get her home again soon.
Take care of yourself as a priority. If your mum has been isolating you should be ok. You do a lot for others so I hope you will have time for yourself. Good luck
You have my admiration, Rowan. My mother always said when she needed to be looked after she expected to come to me. I couldn't have done what you are doing.

I echo, Calmck....I know how you love to be busy with so many things.....I hope you can still have your time to do that....best wishes....Gx
If you are not crazy now you will be by the time that this all this is over.
Well done for stepping in to care for mum when she most requires her children . Best wishes to you both .
