I took my mother, who has dementia here recently on a Sunday afternoon. She wanted to wait in the garden as it was such a sunny day. I was nervous about leaving her while I got the drinks, but it wasn't too busy, so, thinking I wouldn't be long I took a chance on it. Ten minutes later I was still waiting, very anxiously.
