I hope you don't think me an imposter. It's just that I can't find a decent forum to suit. Whilst my Mum does not actually have dementia of any kind, her mental condition means she is not safe at home so is in a nursing home. She came to dislike her house and similarly dislike the nursing home and says 'no' to everything and complains incessantly about her physical health, people there - you name it. We come in for a tirade of her complaints on visits. Anyway if anyone thinks I am not welcome, because my Mum does not actually have dementia (she scored 29/30 on the MMSE), some of her behaviour is giving cause for concern as it seems to fit with some aspects, certainly of what I read about, of dementia. A brain scan was supposed to have been arranged back in April but her useless GPs failed again. Anyway a new consultant has ordered one. I don't personally think she has dementia, but the balance of her mind is badly affected by her condition - and she knows she's ill and that less than a year ago she was doing really well, not ill, though in retrospect we can see there had been a slow burn, so to speak in this direction, not obvious then. I will be seeking info on funding later. Late now.
