On a more general note, I hope you find the forum to be a friendly and supportive place and that you have time to take a good look around the site as it is a goldmine for information.

If you are interested in these, clicking the following links will take you there
You will see that there are Factsheets that will help with things like getting care needs assessments, deciding the level of care required and sorting out useful things like Wills, Power of Attorney etc., if any of that hasn't already been done. There is also a Dementia Guide in the list.
Now that you have found us I hope you will keep posting as the membership has vast collective knowledge and experience.
