There are lots of support groups on facebook etc, set up to help people like yourself. It may be worth a look to see what is available. They are aware that Carers etc are struggling & are willing to help.I’ve not been well all week and just tried to book an online grocery order but it says they have suspended new registrations - I’ve had an online account since 2015 and used it for emergencies!
I care for my mother who has advanced dementia, no relatives or outside help and I have an underlying medical condition that means I should also self isolate but no online shopping means I’ll have to go out.
Mum used a half bottle of washing up liquid today to wash two cups and the loo roll I put in the bathroom this morning has about ten sheets left - she has a ‘thing’ about paper, tissues, loo rolls, kitchen paper and it was easier to just keep buying them in before this happened.
She’s also more anxious and generally difficult and I’m getting hardly any rest or sleep.
I’ve had to be practical and organised but Covid 19 on top of living with a person with dementia feels too much to cope with.
Apologies for the moan.
Everyone take care and stay well x
I hope things get easier for you
