On Saturday when we popped in to see MIL after we'd been to the church bazaar, she proudly showed off the cupboards. We hadn't been to the center since Tuesday (remember we had lots of tasks at home!) so Louis had completed the job and installed the cupboards.
Cabinets under the wash hand basin...
... and one housing the laundry basket and other toiletries
Pam shows me the drawer which pulls out and houses the laundry bag
The panic handle is also in a strategic place
After we'd realized that Pam was settled in and also after the excitement of her sisters' visit last weekend, we decided to leave her be for a few days. (we were exhausted with having run up and down to the center daily for the past six weeks, and we also wanted her to find her feet in the "oldies" section without our input) As mentioned above we'd not been there since Tuesday. We heard from her that during the week she'd been to a birthday party - a fellow resident turned 94 - and also attended the center's birthday dinner on Friday!

So all in all, the exercise paid off. We'll not be visiting her at the home during the week, if possible. We'll pop in on a Saturday and take her a packet of cookies or a soda. At the same time we invite her to dinner on Sunday - we fetch her at an arranged time and return her to the home soon after the meal.
