Only just joined but have been reading posts for a while. Mum has been suffering with dementia for approx 5yrs although only diagnosed June of this year when her aggressive and violent behavior became too much for my dad to cope with. She has been in a care home for 2 months now. Still very aggressive and unsettled. Medication still not quite right.

Anyway my question is that we have been asked to attend a care assessment for mum next week at the care home. Can anyone tell me what this might involve, which agencies will be present and will mum also be there. Not really looking forward to it, as i think mumis no becoming violent towards her carers.

Thanks
Great site and has already been a lot of help and information for me.

Hi Clare,

Hope you don't mind me guiding you a bit here. You should post your question on the main forum in the "Support for people with dementia and their carers"

http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/talkingpoint/discuss/forumdisplay.php?f=2

Just copy the text of your original message and click on the New Thread button.

This forum has been broken down into sections and you just happened to post in the "Computer tips and how to use this discussion board" section. Not a problem at all, I just want to make sure that everyone sees your post. There are plenty of friendly people who read the Support for people with dementia and their carers more regulary...

All I can do is guide you to a factsheet. Hopefully people on the main forum can help you with their personal experiences:

The factsheets are really brilliant, can't recommend them highly enough:

Kindest Regards
Craig
