Hi gefforey. Welcome to TP. I think you'll get more replies if you post in the main forum "support for people with dementia and their carers". You might want to make the same post there, or you could hang on while one of the other mods moves this thread for you. I've not learned how to do it yet.
Glad you found TP....Are you the sole carer for your mum? Are there any other family members nearby or friends who could look after mum so you could get some time to yourself?
its very hard looking after someone with AD 24/7 without a break.....social services should be able to help with daycare centres/sitting services/respite care but you may have to nag them a bit....
