Found this site by accident. My father is due to see specialist next month following another stroke, his Dr has hinted at dementia ? vascular. Feel somewhat apprehensive about future as we live 100 miles apart and he is a widower. Despite being a trained nurse I feel absolutely over laden with it all. reading other peoples experiences does help and i see carers time and time again trying to cope with their loved ones. You have to keep a sense of humour otherwise you will go under. thank goodness for sites like these.
