This is my first time on this site and I was hoping someone might be able to help. I'm 25 years old and supporting my dad who is 44 with Dementia. His wife did care for him (if you could call it that) for about one year until she decided 6 months ago that she had had enough and asked me to take over the care. She has since not had anything to do with my dad and we seem to be getting on ok working through everything but it would just be nice to have people to talk to
