  1. Annoying Neighbours!

    Just a rant really! We live in a quiet cul de sac and there are a fair few oldies who live in it too, infact there are 4 couples under the age of 40 (40 is not old! I'm nearly there), a 40 something couple, a 50 something couple then the rest of the residents are 70+. Last night a relatively...

  4. Grandma died and I feel nothing

    My Grandma died today and I feel nothing at all - I am genuinely starting to wonder whether I am some sort of a sociopath. She had dementia for twenty odd years, and her fair share of maladies and bereavement before that. A sad life, and one I suspect what true self remained in her was happy to...

  5. Ingrate!!

    No so much a dementia related rant but a character one today (yes I know I know the two are intertwined)... MIL - always somewhat spoilt, selfish and ungrateful - has recently upped her demanding behaviour, and has taken to throwing tantrums and hanging up the phone on OH in a huff when he won't...

  7. Can't? Or won't?

    My mum (84) had a carer breakdown and spent time in psychiatric care after looking after my 85 year old dad (dementia) and is now trying to recover from depression and anxiety problems while dad is in residential care. Its a rocky road - we have bad days, and some better - rarely a good day here...

  8. Mum took a tumble

    Mum has had a fall, nobody saw her fall in her CH but she was clearly in a lot of pain so I was called to take her to A+E. There followed a fun 9 hour marathon. At first the x-rays showed no fractures then when reviewed a minor Pubis Rami? fracture was seen. The doc said no treatment would be...

  9. Time!

    Mum has completely lost the ability to understand time. Is this common? How do you deal with it? If I tell her the carer will come at 5.30pm, she thinks the 5.30 is money. If I write 5.30pm on a piece of paper, she can't understand why that isn't the time now (she rings me endlessly when she is...

    Hi Everyone! I'm feeling really down at the moment and would love to have some of your thoughts on this: I'm supporting my parents (mum has dementia) I have like so many of you, literally, given up my life to help my parents. My dad sadly, has almost always, put other's before his family...

    I like many carers have HAD TO GO OUT this morning despite the snow. My heart sunk when I opened the curtains to see it tumbling down and it has not paused for a breath since that time. Had 1/2 a cup of tea, threw yesterdays clothes on (clean undies though) and off I went. Actually made it...

  15. With the right teaching, can dementia patients relearn some of their old skills?

    In one of the threads here, I read that dementia patients can't learn new things. Obviously, it must be much more difficult for them (given the mental short-circuits created by dead and damaged brain cells). Surely, though, some learning must be possible, just as it is in head injury cases? ...

  24. it is just so sad.

    I have finally come to terms with the fact that my husband does not recognise this house as his home. It does not seem to upset him much, and that is the thing I find the saddest, that " our home" does not seem to mean anything to him. I should be glad he is not upset as he doesn't...
