Hi, I'm new on here, and I'd like some advice if possible. My Mum is 83 in 2 weeks, and was diagnosed with vascular dementia last month. My brother and sister seem to think it would be a good idea to move her to sheltered accomodation. I dont agree, especially as the doctor who gave the diagnosis told them it was not a good idea. She is quite depressed and cries a lot, and she is quite frail too. She has a very good carer that visits her twice daily, and she goes to a centre twice a week where she meets people. I think she would be better off with her regular routine, not confused in different surroundings. Also, my mum has been quite depressed for some years now, is it possible that this was the dementia too.
