Sadly our lovely Mum died on Monday 9th March and is now at peace..........
Mum had Vascular Dementia/Alzheimer's for approx 7-8 years and had to go into a EMI Care Home
in the summer. The staff have been wonderful and on Friday 6th Mum was taken to a hospital in Kent
with breathing problems I was away on holiday and arrived home Monday morning and getting a call from my brother telling me what had happened, I rushed down to the hospital and Mum knew it was me although unable to speak she put her arm out and around me for a hug !! this meant so much to me and gave me comfort. sadly she passed away that evening (I am sure she had waited until I could be there).
I wish to add that the nursing care Mum received was terrible the nurses had no understanding of a person with dementia and said Mum was not co- operating with them over her treatment, would lash out at them and also we were told that the previous night Mum had been found wandering down the corridor. I asked if there were any trained dementia nurses at the hospital and told no !!!.
I am going to campaign in Mum's memory for at least 1 trained dementia nurse to be available to assist in the care of people with dementia/Alzheimer's.
Thank you T.P and all of you that have given me and others so much support over the past few years I knew I was not alone. x x x

Dear Kazlou,

Yours was the first message I read on Talking Point, I am so glad that you managed to feel your Mums arms around you once more before she passed away, it was her last gift to you. I have just started the long road with my Dad, but am so glad that I have found a place to share this journey with others.
My sincere condolences.
Lin

Dear Kazlou:

I am sad to hear the news of your Mum. It was good that you had the 'last hug' and that will hold in your memory.

She is now at peace and away from the turmoil of dementia.

Take care yourself. Love Jan
