My mum was diagnosed with vascular dementia in February 2013. Up until now my mum has not been that bad with the condition. But on new years eve my dad died of a stroke and since then she has got worse. She keeps forgetting that he is dead and keeps asking me where he is. This goes on for 10 to 20 mins at a time and can happen 5 to 6 times a day. She has also started to see things that are not there and forgets who I am. Do you think that my mum will get better after my dads funeral or will she now start to get worse. I am not working at the min and do not know what to do about my job. Have been my mum and dads full time carer for the last 7 years and have also managed to keep a full time job on nights 4 on 4 off. She says that if she had to go into a care home she would commit suicide. Finding it hard at the moment.
