I have been my Mum's carer for the last 10 years since my Dad died suddenly and she has been well (she lives me ), we have always done everything together, we were more like sisters than mother/daughter. About a year and a half ago i noticed a change in her memory pattern and has got worse. I talked her in to going for a memory test which she had done back in April, the results were very poor so the hospital suggested having a CT scan which was done back in may, we had an appointment for the results for the middle of june. Suddenly in early June she turned on me, very hateful and aggressive which i found very hard to cope with and i know it was not her fault. We managed to get an emergency appointment with the consultant and was admitted to an assement ward i was then told my Mum had mild to moderate Alzheimers and now in 3 months she has gone to Moderate to Servere. She was put on Aricept about 2 weeks after she was first diagnosed and has been on it for about 8 weeks. She came home for days but i could not cope with the agression so she went into a home for 4 days, they could not get the aricept to her and whilst she was there she got worse and they had to section her and then take her back in to hospital. My Mum is currently back in the assement unit of which she is settled there but they want to move her on to an EMI nursing home. I really do not want her to be moved on but have no choice and because she has no house to sell and i cannot afford to pay for a private home then i am being told that i have no choice as to where she will end up as it will be state funded. i am just so upset and feel like i have let my mum down as i swore that i would never put her in a home. The doctor has said that she might now have mixed Vascular Dementia and Alzheimers as the decline has been so rapid, they will not put her on any more aricept and will not do any more CT scans to find out anymore. Can anyone offer any advice as i really feel alone on this problem?
