I would say Dad has Vascular Dementia rather than AZ and is still continent, but shuffles around rather precariously and very slowly so doesn't actualy do anything between to and fro to the commode, bathrooma nd lap of the house on good days. I do everything but have some care help for half an hour every morning. I work myself (yes more care work so busmans holiday) and although I only do a couple of hours (equals 3 to 3.5 hrs away from home most days) it feels like I never stop and wondering if I would be better cutting my hours. It's a nonsense anyway financially as only earn what I pay out. Finally getting to the reason of this post- do other people who care for a person with dementia full time manage to work (yes I know that'sa bit of a contradiction) If so how many hours do you manage in a typical week and what kind of shift pattern works for you? If you abandoned working all together what stage was your PWD at and what tipped the balance?
