Hi Thanks to everyone who urged me to chat with the GP. Found out that dad now has alz, next stage is the consultant. Doc thinks there may be some pill to slow the dementia down but at 81 I doubt they'll give him it. I can't believe I'm about to embark down this road again 3 years after mum's death only this time I have a 22 month old baby and a part time job working from home. I will be honest and admit I am shaking at the idea of it. magic.
