Hi, I've been a member for a while now, mainly just reading others' posts, which have been a great help. My mum has vascular dementia and lives with me. With hindsight I think the symptoms first started when my dad passed away seven years ago. Mum is now pretty bad and has been in an EMI care home for the past week, with one more week to go (as part of phased care). I realise how lucky I am to have the break, but I am really struggling with the thought of mum coming home. I can’t cope with her anymore. Feeling really guilty about this and don’t really know where to turn or what to do. Can anyone help please?
