Hi there, this is my first time writing on talking point but I am feeling really upset and didn't know who to ask for some support. So here goes.... My mum has early onset Alzheimer's and throughout the past few years we have had to have many difficult conversations as a family but it never seems to get any easier. When my children were born, my mum looked after them and would take them to nursery and pick them up every day after work. She has continued to look after them since diagnosis but now has come the time when she needs support to do this and I've just had to have a really difficult conversation with my Dad to say that I don't feel like it's safe for her to do alone now. I feel really upset like I have broken his heart to point out how much she is struggling and I know that she will be devastated when I have to share my thoughts with my mum. I love my parents and want to protect them from this disease and its consequences but I have to put my children first. My mum has done everything for me, now I just feel like I'm letting her down. Thanks for reading this, I just hoped to share with people who would understand.
