Welcome to the forums, @grant050163. Good to know you have carers in to help with personal washing, that makes a difference, and you can still have a laugh. My granny used to introduce me as her brother, but at least it was still family.
Anyway, you will find advice and support here, so keep going and stay strong and safe yourself.

Hi Grant, I too live with my mum who has Vascular Dementia and yes this Virus and the lockdown is making life so difficult. One day at a time that's all we can do.
