Yes thank you so so much for being here - your are all a lifeline
I'm grateful to you for your support, thank you. We're trying SS again. Not holding out much hope!Hello and welcome to DTP @louisas32
this sounds a very difficult situation for all concerned, with regards to the violence shown to your husband please be aware that involving the police is an option it could lead to her being sectioned but if she is a danger to herself and others her behaviour can not be ignored.
SS need to be told your MIL is a vulnerable person and is not safe to be out by herself and needs an urgent assessment.
now you have found the forum I hope you will continue to post for support at this incredibly difficult time
Rant away @Gladys1946. That’s what we are here for.I'm at the end of my tether with my husband. Every day he says he's going to get his hair cut and every day I tell him the same thing. Then he gets angry, says it's stupid and goes out anyway. His Dementia has got so much worse since all this and I'm finding that I'm just not coping with him. I get so bad tempered with him. He's just said he doesn't know what's the matter with me. I do. I'm sick of explaining the situation. We have notes on the door, on the wall but it makes no difference. I don't think anyone can have the faintest idea what it's like to live and care for someone with dementia unless they've experienced it. It's just horrible. Sorry for the rant but things have just got on top of me.
