Reading previous posts, we all have similar journeys with our loved ones, and my family has been through a lot. First my dad, who died about 11 years ago, with vascular dementia and much less was understood about his condition...now my my mum, who we moved up to London after much resistance, so we could care for her. She's doing remarkably well since we have put rotas in place to care, wash, medicate, cook, and just give her company, even to the extent that like many others have mentioned, we've got daytime caters going in during the week around lunchtime, so we can work. That has meant we manage the evening and weekends much better and don't worry about the weekdays so much. Last night though, mum had hallucinations, and thought my dad was still alive, living with someone else - she thought we were conspiring keeping his address from her. It was entirely real for her and very distressing. She was sure that was the reality. I feel that this is a significant change in her condition and am worried about the possibility that we Amy not be able to continue caring for her at home. Does anyone have similar experiences?
