I have just joined after searching for some support following a trying day ! I am new to caring as very sadly my father in law died a fortnight ago, and had done a good job of sheltering us from the extent of my mother in laws decline. We were aware of her memory problems, and my husband actually instigated a GP visit and subsequent investigations a year ago. But boy ! we had no idea how bad things had become until of course her mainstay has gone. This will probably be a familiar story and I am hoping to get information and support from you experienced members.
