You are doing a brilliant job caring for your mum! We are just about to get broadband installed at mums house so we can install some security cameras and a camera doorbell. The last straw was last week when a man knocked on the door at 6.30 pm with a sob story about needing money to visit a sick relative. Luckily my brother was there and gave him a right mouthful but it was apparent that he had been there before. I do check her bank account on line each week so I know that there has been no unusual spending but she does get cash out regularly so I reckon she has given him some of that. Mind you, I can just imagine mums reaction if she was opening the door just as I was interrogating the person stood there, my remote voice would freak her out! Also my sister will be starting to work as mums carer next week, she is going to do 20 hours over four days which means me and my brother can easily cover the other days, especially during the football season when he takes her to all Manchester City home matches! She is going to take mum out to a couple of activities for people with dementia ( walking, a keep fit class and a coffee morning) and get her doing more things around the house - to give her more stimulation and also tire her out!
