Hi there Am hoping this forum will give me some inspiration, strength, courage. In the future, I hope that I can supply to others. My dad has vascular dementia (also a shunt for normal pressure hydrocephalus) - he's been living with us for 18 months - he's deteriorated greatly since Christmas. He's not had a shower for over 5 weeks as always not up to it ... does this mean it's time to get carers in? Thank you.
