had to cancel the day centre

I have had to reluctantly with mums agreement cancel the day centre that she went to as for us it was not working out, she was finding it too much to cope with, well at 90 it was a long day she was picked up in the morning at 0845 and did not get back again until 5pm, she was the first one that was picked up in the morning and the last one off of the bus, so rather than have her suffer because of going it was best to knock it on the head now
