My grandmother lived in the same house her whole life until, at the age of 89, she (was) moved into a care home - basically against her will, but she already had severe dementia by then and didn’t realize what was happening. In the care home, she always thought she was for some reason staying at the guest house next door, and that it only looked a bit different because they had renovated. She died soon after her 90th birthday.

(The family who runs that guest house and my grandmother’s family had been close since my 3x-great-grandparents had moved to the area around 1850. My grandmother regularly ate at their restaurant, and before they all got too old, she met up there every other week or so with her girlfriends to play skittles and have some drinks.)

Edit: when I was young we played croquet.

Wonder where our set is now. Maybe my hoarding sister knows more :grinning:
