Been trying to get council tax waiver for Mum but the GP says that as she has never been 'officially' diagnosed she doesn't have dementia!! This despite a hospital stay in June as a 'Butterfly' patient, carers 4 times a day, meals on wheels, higher level attendance allowance, double incontinence etc etc. But as she has never been to a memory clinic they can't say that she has dementia! The district nurses have also visited her re incontinence. I can see that I will have to give up as I can't at this stage inflict clinics etc on Mum who is now too frail to cope with such things. I knew her GP practice was useless but didn't know that they were quite so bad. However, at least I convinced them that they are not allowed to charge £20 for giving this information - so a small victory. As if life isn't difficult enough - sigh..
