Hi My Dad has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimers. I am at work when my local support group is on so cannot go for support. I could do with some tips. Things keep coming into mind which I might need to do for him (e.g. apply for Attendance Allowance, obtain Power of Attorney, etc) but these are all practical things. I don't know what type of emotional support and care I can offer from a distance (I live Wirral, Dad in Wales). I only manage to visit fortnightly (unless anything urgent crops up) and I feel guilty about it. I am becoming over emotional and stressed, mainly because I am not around enough. At the mo Dad is in hospital recovering from a broken femur. A care package has been mentioned, but how much will they try to put back on me? I have had Social Services out twice this year to assess him to no avail! Feeling isolated and let down. Gosh! Don't I ramble and aren't I a bore? Sorry Any useful tips, please.
