This is my first time.....I am 29 and my mum is 60.My mum was diagnosed with Alzheimers early this year,she first started to lose her memory five years ago.She lives with her partner-he works all day mon-fri and plays golf at the weekend.I see my mum twice a week at the most,as i live an hour away,don't always have a car and have two sons under five.My mum's mother lives abroad and all other family live four hours away. I really don't know what to do,as mum's partner has started to say he can't cope anymore and threatened twice to leave.She can't cook or make a cup of tea,gets confused etc.We tried to get a helper in at lunchtimes,but mum wouldn't have someone she didn't know in the house.I feel i aught to look after her,and feel pressure from rest of family to be doing more.I don't know if i could cope with mum and two children! I feel i'm being selfish,i start a degree in september and feel perhaps i shouldn't be doing it. I don't know what to do next,who to contact for help? Have been told by doctors,there is nothing more they can do.Mum has tried two memory tablets and they didn't do anything.I think mum has mixed dementia as she has many of the factors.Sorry if i'm going on a bit,but the whole situation is getting me down Can anyone suggest anything,or anyone in the same boat?
