    Mum Is self funding and I was waiting till we got home to see what we do about returning to a bit of day care or nurses coming in, it’s been a harsh week but has gone quickly so haven’t put extra care in place yet but know I have to. It’s horrid seeing her so sad. I know it’s going to take...

    Donepezil and bowel incontinence

    MUm really suffered with this and for years we put it down to other medical issues as the doctors never said anything when I spoke to them about it. The only thing I can put it down to was the doeprizil since being on memantine no issues at all.

    Oh gosh you have both had a hard few months. I hope she is comfortable and I’m glad she isn’t distressed. I don’t. Understand how one week someone can’t donsomething and then can, you get your head around the changes and make facilities good and then back again, it’s the emotional ups and...

    Ok great thank you. My 16 year old has downs and accesses the community dentist so have asked about taking mum on too. It’s my 13 year old who thinks Santa shouldn’t fill gifts out with the usual pants and socks!! And compares himself to his brothers one of 9 and one with downs and forgets he...

    I get it completely! Just done the hoist and pad change again and been reduced to tears again, because I’m using the hoist she thinks she can’t move anything but to push against me. Once I know we are staying at this stage and not bouncing back I think I will have to do as you do. I have...

    Thank you. We were given a hospital bed and hoists and commode last winter when things got bad but then she picked up again now recently back down again! Because I don’t hoist and bed bath all the time I find it really distressing and stressful when we have to because it isn’t second nature yet...

    I’m not sure but I think it depends on what part of the brain is effected. I should think speak to the gp and see if they can help with medication. Mum has in the past been able to stand for others but not me too! X
