Hello all. I would like to ask about vascular Alzheimer's as this is the type of dementia that my mother has. I would really appreciate hearing from other people who have experienced caring for someone with this condition because I'm finding it so very, very hard. Mum was diagnosed almost two years ago but has shown symptoms for at least two years before that. I must admit that I hate seeing what my mother has become and I am very concerned for the future. Caring for my mum is the hardest thing that I have ever done and I'm so very grateful to my wonderful family for all the support that they are giving me. To every other carer out there, I admire you so much. How do people cope?
