I posted yesterday about the problems we have had in getting mum assessed. Well today the pyschiatrist visited and we had a meeting with her consultant. She has been diagnosed with dementia, which is what I think I expected and her MMSE score is 20. It seems that this is some sort of qualifying magical score because the psychiatrist has said that if her score was 20 or less she could be given Aricept. What should I do now? Given this diagnosis and her significant mobility difficulties, I have been wondering about whether she might qualify for NHS continuing care. Has anyone on here successfully applied for this under the new Oct 07 guidlines ? We have an EPA set up but not yet registered. I cannot see any benefit at the present time to registering this, but am I missing anything? Dad has reviewed their wills and wants to change to tenants in common with a protected property trust.I think this should still be possible, as Mum still has, I believe, mental capacity. Is there anything else that I should be considering at this stage ? Finally thanks to everyone who takes the trouble to reply to these posts, it really does mean a lot. I am considering getting my 85 yr old dad a computer now, as I think he would benefit from an online community. He's not coping very well at the moment.
