Hi there, there are some very helpful people on this site. My mum was diagnosed with dementia a couple of years ago, she is getting worse, but still has 'sort of' good days, and I can still mange to make her laugh !! (She also suffers from depression) . I like to read up on as much info as I can so I'm always reading other people's questions and worries Etc, it makes you feel your not alone.

Hello Sharpy, Welcome to TP.
Yes it is so very hard seeing all the changes.
I wouldn't say you get used to it , I never did but I learned to cope.

Their is a mine of information on here from people who understand what it can be like because they are/have been there.
So feel free to ask questions, it's also a good place to let off a bit of steam when you need to.
