Hello and welcome.

There is a thread on communication with the memory impaired that may contain a few useful hints. It can be found by clicking the following link

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. When I first joined I read old threads for information but then found the AS Publications list and the page where a post code search can be done to check for support services in ones own area. If you are interested in these, clicking the following links will take you there

https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/get-support/publications-factsheets-full-list

https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/find-support-near-you

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.

Not really, no sorry. Life is difficult; they can't remember the TV shows they've watched and I'm frequently read an article from a newspaper that's days out of date.

These days, I try to stick to a topic such as my daughter's wedding but I'm usually left with that blank look.
