There, Very concerned about my mum. She is 90 this year.

Resolved Question:

Hi There,
Very concerned about my mum. She is 90 this year. We have recently moved into a retirement flat It's been almost a year of upheaval , living out of boxes, solicitors paperwork to complete etc.
Anyway, since moving into new flat mum has been imagining things like other people in flat,cats fighting, noises etc. I am not getting much sleep because of mum disturbing me due to these visions etc. Have just registered both of us with Doctor but have to wait until 25th for appointment. I'm due to go over to the Channel islands in a couple of weeks time but seriously thinking of cancelling because of the worry of leaving her on her own. Please can you advise .
Many Thanks .
Alan
