could see her standing naked at the window with her hands on her hips - laughing. She then went over to my PC and unplugged everything
I am afraid of her. Tomorrow I'm going to call Social Services; our Doctor and her Psychiatrist - as I refuse to go in in this situation.
Also..I doubt very much that she will be able to change her will. Remember the old adage about being "of sound mind and body"?
A lawyer will realise and recognise her dementia straight away and will not process the request, or change the will.
Gee what a life. I don't want to resport to Sheltered Accommodation or a Council House. I've given Mum 5 years of my life and don't see why I shouldn't have something in return.
Are you aware that my mother is suffering from middle stages of Alzheimers which is a mental illness ? Only am a little uncertain as to what you're saying.
Earlier I thought I would break the ice and went up to see how she was. She wasn't in her room so I called out asking where she was. She replied from the lavatory "what do you want to know for you bitch". I then said I was going to do your hair for you but not now if that's your attitude
I then said I was going to do your hair for you but not now if that's your attitude
In the meantime I'm here shaking like a leaf having been unablee to sleep all night in fear that she would start hitting me or worse and not knowing what I'm going to do next. I know I can't carry on . I also wonder what help this tablet will be
Would also like to point out that I didn't leave my home tp move in with my mothe
1)jenniferpa you're over 60 and 2) you gave up your home to care for her. I've been wracking my brains about this, but as far as I can see sectioning would be your only realistic hope
Am wondering whether she will be able to change her will (as she has threatened to do) to remove me as beneficiary in favour of a charity ? Does anyone know please ?
You do not need to get someone section any more to find out if you feel they lack the mental capacity to make their own decisions, to go into a care home or not .Mental Capacity Act 2005 Code of Practice (2007 Final Edition)

Mental Capacity Act Code of Practice (2007 Final Edition)
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 creates statutory provisions to empower and protect vulnerable people who lack the mental capacity to make their own decisions. Issued on 23 April 2007, the Code of Practice provides guidance on how the provisions of the Act will work on a daily basis for those caring for, or working with, people lacking mental capacity.
The Code is important for professionals - such as doctors and social workers - but family, friends, and unpaid carers will also find it helpful. While certain groups of people are legally required to have regard to the Code when acting or making decisions on behalf of people lacking capacity, those who are not legally required to have regard to the Code are still encouraged to use it as a good practice guide.http://www.tsoshop.co.uk/bookstore.a...trackid=001581
