Thank you for allowing me to join. My mum was recently diagnosed with late onset Alzheimers and short term memory loss. Both my sister and I are blaming ourselves for not thinking it was anything more than mum just being mum. We now retrospectively realise it has been going on for some time. We haven't seen our mum since she left home in an ambulance after a fall in October 2020. We were taking it in turns to care for her at home. It was becoming a real struggle for us both. She was placed in a care home by the hospital and has remained there since. Mum's deteriorating so rapidly mentally. It really is very hard to comprehend how fast she is changing. I'm hoping these forums will help me understand more about what's going on with mum.
