My mum is 93 and has Alzheimers. She still lives alone in her own home (owned by me)where she has lived for 60 years. I live and work 100 miles away and am only child. I get down there every fortnight to do her shopping, sort out her money and generally catch up - although conversations are becoming difficult. I've got her carers 3/day, a cleaner, a gardener, meals on wheels etc. Lately she has deteriorated very quickly. Very confused, very angry, very forgetful. Refuses to wash and dress. Eating is spasmodic, as is drinking. I feel very guilty. She hates being on her own but she forgets about any visitors. Anything I say to her she doesn't believe. She sleeps most of the day and her dreams become her reality. I'm putting off the time when I may have to place her in a home so she can receive better care. She refuses point blank to go anywhere for respite and says she wants to stay in her home. I cry every time I leave her house Any advice please...??
