Thank you for all the replies. My mother’s hand though probably caused by Parkinsons is actually nerve damage not Parkinsons so at this stage improvement is not expected.
She does need 24 hour care so is actually in a care home but a lot of the other people are older and she says their social activities are to old for. I think she does have a little bit of bias against them as some aren’t age specific in that way - they do have the local nursery in and my mother has always liked children but doesn’t go to it. She has always been a very independent active person and sadly the activities that readily spring to mind - bingo, cards etc just seem like old person activities to her. She wants to feel like she still has a semblance of her old life which doesn’t really fit in with just sitting in the care home but I don’t thinking funding places would see her as isolated as such.
As Tee Hee has hit on the trouble is if there is any social event that would offer the level of care she needs if she goes on her own. She can never walk without at least some supervision but her mobility is really up and down and in a worse period (which of course you can’t predict) she could change in the period of an hour to being almost a dead weight.
