Yesterday was awful. Mum fell off the toilet and I couldn't get her up. She lashed out and badly bruised my arm. Stressful for both of us and I finally have to admit I NEED HELP. When I asked Mum's psychiatric nurse (who only comes to see us when she wants to stop the Aricept) she said: "Look in Yellow Pages". I need someone to help me get her up and in the shower (she refuses most days) and, more importantly, someone with medical knowledge to spot whether her behaviour is due to illness (urine infections, constipation, etc) or another downturn in her condition. If the Social Services don't provide such a person can anyone recommend a good agency in the Dorset area?
