My Vascular Dementia 60th birthday gift

My mother was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia in January 2020 and spent several weeks in hospital in London. She was then transferred to a specialist care home in Waltham Abbey Essex. Her diagnosis came completely out of the blue to myself as much of my contact with her was by phone (I live in Wales UK and her in central London). Due to current Covid restrictions in the home, I have not been able to visit her to date. 
This month is my 60th birthday and I would like to raise £600 (£100 per decade) for her care home.
My mother is 77 years old and does not recognise my voice on the phone! The last time I saw her, in the hospital, was in March 2020.
We used to have weekly chats on the phone, before her diagnosis and as you can imagine, not being able to chat to her as usual or have her stay with me in Wales, is very upsetting to say the least!

If you can help me in raising my target I would be extremely grateful!
