I am new to this but felt i needed to say why i am on here! My mum passed away on 26th november i was her carer for 3 years also for my dad, who has dementia. I moved in with them to care for them, now all i feel is guilt my dad is in a care home due to his wandering(i had to call the police once as he was missing all day). My mum went into a care home as i could not cope with the sleepless nights(she was on sleeping tablets, but they had no effect)i am working part time and wasnt getting any sleep as she use to knock on my bedroom door for me four or five times a night.She died in hospital and we were very shocked when we recieved the death certificate to see the cause of death was AD as we were never informed of this. I realise now because the smptoms described on the website she had(hallucinations etc),in the end she stopped eating couldnt swallow and stopped talking. I keep thinking perhaps she would still be here if i hadnt placed her in a care home!
