    My mum who is 76 with severe AZ/VasD moved into residential care 5 weeks ago following a 5 month stay in an assessment unit has been receiving treatment for a pressure sore on her bottom.

All I do...

  5. Looking after mum

    After my dad died in 2009 we finally had mum diagnosed with dementia - dad had hidden the fact of how bad mum was. We knew that there were problems but dad adored my mum.

  6. Court of Protection : Guarantee Bond

    I have almost been appointed as a Deputy for my Mother. Before the appointment is final, I am told by the Court of Protection that I must buy a "Guarantee Bond" with AVIVA Insurance. This, I think, protects my Mother against any financial loss, if I fail to carry out my Deputyship duties. But I...

  8. Merle

    I am desperate for respite which is available if I could get my husband to agree. He was diagnosed with Alzheimers over three years ago but still will not acknowledge there is anything wrong with him - just short-term memory loss which is "normal" at his age (83) - consequently, why should he go...

  13. Tired of putting on an upbeat act

    Feel I have a duty to 'cheer mum up' all the time as, while not realising her full diagnosis or its implications, she often seems down and (obviously) confused.
