We are five months into looking after mum who has been diagnosed after dad had a double stroke and was placed in a care home. Mums short term memory is non existant and cannot retain information for more than a minute. It's been a learning curve all of it from having to apply for guardianship at the court of protection which takes forever to getting involved with medics on a daily basis. Were just about to start home help with a good company but mum is so very resistant to any help and we can see her being an issue with the carer. The CPN Nurse and OT have presented it as their idea which she seems to respect. Anyone else in this situation?
