hi my mum is on night dialysis and we have a holiday booked for 2 weeks, on asking about respite we where told there is no care homes who deal with patients on dialysis and also mum has dementia. you try to do right by having family at home to care for them but when you need help there seems to be very little. my wife who has to connect mum at night and take her off in the morning also works full time. it seems to me that you are better off if you let the hospital do the dialysis because when you do it yourself they seem to step back. any help with suggestions on respite would be very helpful thanks. sorry about the moaning but it gets to you a bit which you all understand.
