My mum has had dementia for 4 years or so now and needs help with feeding, washing, dressing etc, My dad is the main carer and I visit when I can to help but she is now living in a small room upstairs in the house as she wont go down stairs - anyone else had this issue? It is so sad as she is getting very overweight as still has a good appetite and not sure what to do to help her. She has a carer in each morning to get her up, washed and dressed at 10am and is back in bed at 10pm. She also doesn't speak which is the most difficult thing as she was a right chatter box, I am at the stage where I cant really remember my old mum and its making me very down supporting my dad through it all as well. I dread when the end does come but we are already grieving.
