I was directed to this website by my Mum's doctor today and suddenly I don't feel as alone as I have done the past few months. My Mum had a stroke a couple of years ago and then broke her hip last year. Life was " manageable " until around Christmas but then things really started going wrong. After several " incidents " her Doc has finally agreed that she may have dementia and has finally made a referral. Up until today I have felt like my whole world was coming down on me, and I know that we have a very long road ahead but it sure helps to know that I am not alone and reading some of these posts today has helped me so much already!!
