I have just found this wonderful site,where at last people seem to understand how awful this disease is. My mother is in the final stages of dementia, she is always frustrated and unhappy, I am her only visitor in the nursing home. I always come away in tears, she is my world, and and I love her so much. life is just so unfair. I hope others relatives are more settled in their own worlds, as poor mum has always been so sad. The EMI home she is in is the most wonderful place and the staff are just brilliant, for that I am so grateful. I lookf forward to becoming aa part of this forum.
