Mum is now out of hospital for the second time, things are a little bit better she 'now has a nice lady who talks too much' come round every morning and evening to make sure she takes her tablets. Her CPN visits twice a month to give her a depo injection, [this should stop her phoning the police at all hours to report the man next door for plotting to murder her]. She is still ringing me to deal with every problem that comes up, even if it is only to say a lady on the street looked at her in a funny way. I have just had to take her car to be repaired and mot even though thank God she is not driving it at the moment. But she tells every one she is better now and doe's not need any help. If I miss going to see her one day she phones me to say she has not spoken to another living soul all day, and her days are endless if I cant visit. She has friend that offer to visit her ,but she puts them off because of bizzare things she thinks they have said or done. While in hospital she was taken for a brain scan and we were told if there was anything that showed up we would be told. We have heard nothing so still have no answers. Her Doctor told me she has dementia but as she is only 67 they do not know why. I do know she is not the youngest but am left with questions. Also her social worker told me to get power of attorney when I rang a solicitor I was told Mum has to do the arranging of it not me. When i spoke to Mum about it she say's we dont need that as there is nothing wrong with her. Help now what. I work full time have a disabled child, am a single parent, Iam at present filling in forms to claim DLA for my daughter , attendance allowance forms to pay for mums carer. I only get time to look on this web site about once a month. all of my time is taken up with work running up to Mums the children and colapsing into bed any ideas for better ways of coping.???
