Why are there no fact sheets or interviews/broadcasts/adverts/public information/professional support and respite for people and their families/carers..who don't live well with dementia?? So many times,I read a thread or post on here with a link to compassionate communication,as though this is not the obvious thing that the carer or relative is already trying to help the PWD... What and where is the support for them,when all help has failed? Is the answer to put the PWD in a home?? The type of homes to accommodate the people who don't live well with dementia are few,far between and usually full! And what about for those that have chosen to or no choice but to look after the dementia sufferer at home because there is NO support,no local services,no respite,no body who can give you an answer/shoulder to cry on ,without being given the Alzheimer's society or admiral nurse to talk to,who only then say 'have you looked at our fact sheets? Or have you taken this up with your MP ??" Yep,cause that just magics it all away and we are all shiny happy people again...NOT! Sorry,mini vent,but iam,like so many others on here,dealing with NOT LIVING WELL WITH DEMENTIA and would like to open a little window of reality to let some steam off..
