My mil came home on Monday and had no recollection of having been in hospital for 10 days. She has lost weight and on reading the discharge papers noticed that the Ward doctor has seen her CT scan which showed a bleed in the brain and small vessel disease so I guess she has vascular dementia. Still waiting for the follow up appointment for the CR scan, discharge notes also said she is to have another CT scan in 6 weeks. Mil has been in bed since coming home from hospital, she now needs to be bathed

HI, the care home my dad is has a calendar saying what activities they have planned for the month ahead but they never seem to do any of the activities. It doesn't matter what time of day I go they never do any activities at all. I have asked other visitors and they say the same. They are suppose to have pizza and movie night but I doubt that goes ahead. Do you think activities are important? Thank you
My Father moved into a care home last August at 86. He has dementia which affects his short and medium term memory. Four weeks ago a lady at a similar stage of dementia was admitted. She and my Father have become very close. They hold hands and spend time in each others room. The staff say they have never come across this before. We agree it's rather lovely. My Father is much happier than he's been since my Mum died (also with dementia) three years ago. Does anyone share a similar situation and

Think that could lead her into all sorts of bother.
