This is my first post so here goes. My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimers and Vascular Dementia over 2 years ago. Unfortunately my parents live 250 miles away. This in itself is enough concern, dad is now 83 and mum 79. I try and visit evey 4-5 weeks or so to see whats going on and lend a helping hand. My brother lives approximately 110 miles from my parents and also visits on a regular basis.The family-my brother and myself and respective partners have seen the decline in his condition.
