Im in the exact same position. I'm 56 and lived in my parents house for 48 years. It will have to be sold later this year to pay for his care. I often loose sleep trying to solve a problem that can't be solved. house prices round my way are ridiculously high. I always hoped i could look after...
Has anyone got any suggestions for quick cleaning carpets when they have been urinated on?
My dad takes his nappys off at night and then wee's everywhere . Just wondered if any one had tips on products available to make sure you don't get that awful urine smell in the house.
I use 1001 spray...
a family member can act as Deputy
your family cannot evict you, they would not have the legal authority to do so - in fact if no-one has POA or Deputyship, then no-one can legally deal with your dad's affairs if he no longer has capacity; a tricky position to be left in
while your dad lives...
DD seems encouraging.
But at what point do I tell LA about my position?. the initial financial paper just asked if my father is self funded or not.
Im thinking of having him back home for as long as possible to save cost and give me a home. As we have no legal access to his funds at the...
No POA have applied for deputyship, will take 9 months and I'm not allowed to do as conflict of interest. I do not own any part of the property. with deputyship my family would probably have to evict me, so i will have no ware to live.
If dad had died I would have inherited a portion and been...
I need legal advice and I don't know how to find a solicitor who understands the nuances of living in a home of a dementia patient .
I have lived with my father in his home for 55 years. I have spent some of my won money on the house. I'm under 60 not disabled. The house may be considered for...
If you have dementia , can you not get NHS continued care funding? My dad had a check list done, he failed but I was not given a report. Social service implied he'd got two A's but one was cancelled out because he had dementia so didn't make it to full assesment.
Has anyone any suggestions on how to bath someone who gets angry and doesn't want to get wet?
How can I keep him clean?
Each bath time now has got worse and worse, this Saturday I was in tears.
Anyone gpt any ideas?
My dad is 95 and has severe dementia , he remembers very little of his past or present. People say they remember the past, mine doesn't. He lives in a 3 minuet memory.
I watched the video of the bookcase it makes sense, except for one thing.
My dad when normal had the emotional depth of a...
Alas dad is very very mobile! he has a 3 minuet memory so teaching him to use a commode would be like me learning to fly.
He also thinks he needs no help and looks after himself. But thanks for your idea.
I thought not, but it was worth asking.
I had same idea as you to put wire down the loo! but then I thought of things getting caught. Also I'm sure he would pull it out! he pulls things out of the bins!
Cant go with him to the loo as it happens at night he's up every 2 to 3 hours, i can't do...
My dad has started flushing his pants down the toilet. So now he dosn't ware them, i can't have him blocking the drains let alone the cost in M&S nickers!
Most throw away paper pants won't flush. Has or does anyone know of any that can be flushed?
She still is very strong ...as the three of us and the nurses found out.. one was smacked across her face....consultant was punched in the eye.
Hope you dont mind but When I read this it made me smile well laugh actually, (how i would like to be able to do this sometimes!) she seems to be a...
