My 86 year old mum has vascular dementia. She lives one hour away from me. My brother lives with her. She comes to stay with my husband and I relatively often. I picked her up on Thursday and she has not settled in at all. Keeps worrying about back home and keeps asking if her mum is back at the house. My brother doesn't talk to me so I'm not sure how she is at home. Is this sort of thing 'normal'? Any advice would be welcome as I don't know which way to turn. I'm getting very close to cracking as my husband's health is becoming very worrying and I feel like I'm not strong enough to shoulder it all.
