hi, I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s last year after an initial diagnosis of vascular dementia in 2016, this was changed after a brain scan. I am 63 and have lived alone since losing my husband in 2002 and moved to be closer to my son and his family after the initial diagnosis. They have been a godsend my daughter in law has is brilliantl and would do anything for me and we get on really well. I started on donezprazil last year and have coped really well until very recently. I now realise that I need extra help with day to day stuff and although my son has taken over most of the financial stuff which was a big help I don’t want to put everything onto them I worked on a dementia ward for many years and looked after my dad who had vascular dementia until he died so I know how this thing works. I suppose what I’m asking is when is it time to throw my hands up and say I can’t do this on my own anymore, I have always made it clear I don’t my family to have to take care of me when things start to get difficult I would not wish that on them I’d rather go into a care facility but when? What do I do in the meantime ? I know I need more than I’m willing to ask from my family but not much more than that.
