dear all I have only recently joined this forum. I have been reading the threads with interest and there has been a lot of helpful information. I have posted on a subject when I have though I could help, but now I need to ask for help myself. To be quite truefull dont really know where to start, so I will ask the question I need the most help on and will fill in any gaps along the way. Mum was diagnosed with Alzheimers 2 years ago and since then has been living with me this has worked well and I have very happy to have mum with me. At first the CPN visited every 4 - 6 weeks and the consultant from the hospital every 4 months. After about 8 months the doctor left and it took about a year with locums to get a new doctor who is now visiting every six months, I have only seen the CPN once in 6 months as he was passing. We had an appointment for the doctor this week but today the the CPN called to cancel it. I explained that I was not very happy with this and that we had not seem him properly in over six months. I really needed to speak with the doctor as mum had got worse in the past six months. At last the question, How often should the doctor or cpn visit?
