Help!!!! I am the daughter of a recently diagnosed PWD (dad). He lives with my mum who is now his primary carer but I am effectively the carer of both of them as I live in the same town. Both of them are in their late 70s. I am struggling to support my mum. She has gone into panic mode about what may happen in the future especially regarding her ability to live comfortably should my dad need nursing care later in his progression. I am concerned because she is trying herself in knots and twisting what people are saying to her, she is also cutting back on some of the things they already pay for such as dog walking to save money but I think this will only add to the load she is feeling not reduce it. She has voiced a need for a break but when offered one refuses it and comes up with reasons why it can't happen. My dad was diagnosed less than a fortnight ago and fundamentally things haven't changed except he has been put on medication that is reducing or getting rid of his hallucinations. At the moment he is safe to leave alone and it is really only making sure he eats and takes his pills that is needed and I can do this by popping around. Looking for tips on how to deal with this situation as I am getting frustrated with mum's irrational behaviour which I hope is a result of stress and nothing more.
