That all sounds pretty hard going Jknight. Sorry your thread asking for advice on the scratching didn't help you, I'm stuck myself on answers to that one.I can see what you are saying. We haven't reached the advanced stage yet (we are at the scratching until she bleeds, on a daily basis, craing sugar, flooding the bathroom etc) so I guess I was being naive hoping the publicity would help raise awareness. My bad.
I was a bit more optimistic than Kevin when I noticed the links to the Alzheimer's Society on the BBC report, but when you are up to your eyes in Dementia and all it's indignities it's hard to stay positive for long.
