hi, my nan has Alzheimers, she has had it for about 2 years now and is currently living in a flat by herself and has careline available. My dad is always at her house cleaning her house, taking her shopping etc, he suffers from depresion and having to looki after his mum is making him worse. She is always phoning us up every 10 minutes. She does not call her other son who lives in manchester saying hes too far away to call, when he does speak to her the only speak for a few minutes. she is getting worse by the day, my mum has to do all her washing for her and she is now incontinent, she does not change her clothes at all even when we tell her they need to be as she has accidents, but shes does not understand and the next time shes still wearing the same clothes, she has got to the stage now where she smells, im sure she never washes now. She hardly eats anymore we have tried meals on wheels, but she just stored them in the fridge saying could keep them untill best before date. the only time she eats a proper meal is when one of us puts it in front of her and stays while she eats, if we leave it with her she leaves it on one side. we have been to socail services who admitted she was a risk to herself but there is nothing they can do as she is not willing to go in to a residential home. My mum and dad are going away next week and we are all concerned about how shes going to cope, it only for a few days, but, they wont be around to help her. We worry even more that if something were to happen that she does not know to pull the cord for carline. we just dont know what to do anymore, we know that a home is the best place for her but she says theres nothing wrong with her and she does not need help, she says shes just fooling us. She had a fall a few months back at the local shops, we were called and took her to the doctor, who told us to take her to A&E as he was concerned, they did not admit her and we had to take her back to our to keep an eye on her in the night to make sure she did not get worse. does anyone know how we can help her? thanks she just wont admitt that she need some help and with my mum and dad going away next week i dont know how she will cope.
