Hello all. I came across this facility via my local councils website. I'm a part-time carer for Mum and Dad both in their 80s..they live independently but I visit frequently, am in the process of getting LPOA, and, of course, am on alert all the time. Mum has Vascular dementia following 2 strokes and it is rapidly gotten worse in the last 6 months particularly. Dad has Parkinsons but of slow-progression and he still drives. His memory isn't great but compared to Mum it's first class! I'm hoping to come on here and vent my worries, ask my questions and eventually offer help to others. This forum is just what I've been looking for as my brothers don't seem to think Mums that bad and i believe they think I'm exaggerating. My husband tries to understand......! I've spent a while looking at other threads and from what ive read, i am a little scared of what might lay in front of us as my parents become frailer.
