    Hi.

    My Mum is 72 and has been diagnosed for 15 months with Alzheimer’s and frontal temporal damage (possibly FTD but not confirmed). She knows her language finding is difficult but has no insight into her other needs and is fiercely independent. Dad is struggling and we need extra support to help with giving Dad a break regularly. She is starting to need personal care but we can manage for a bit longer between my sister and I. Sorry for long post - it’s all so difficult and sad.
