Hi Sorry not posted for a while, things have been plodding on with mum, she is getting more stubborn with me when I try to do anything for her and won't let me even make her a cup of tea, she is happy with her own brew (usually just hot water cos she forgets to put milk, sugar and even the tea bag in the cup!) but si is adamant she can "do it herself" frustrating for me but what can you do! This is just a query, has anyone else experienced a long wait between being told their relative is going on Aricept to actually getting the drug prescribed. We were told in May that mum was to go on Aricept and we were told at the start that the whole process would take 6-8 weeks (!!) it is now nearly December and we are still waiting for a visit from the dedicated Aricept Nurse/Occ Therapist who apparently have to visist first before mum can be started on this drug. Am i expecting too much too soon. Its just that obviousy 6-8 weeks has truned into 6-8 months and that is a long time for an alzheimers sufferer, and selfishly this is OUR MUM we are talking about and obviously we want to do right by her and for her. We have been told now that it may even be JAnuary before they can come and see her. any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated and also any information on whose buttons to press to get things moving would be a help.
