Hello - Happy New Year to all! I've not posted for a while - the last few weeks have been horrendous! Dad was admitted to hospital between Christmas and New Year - extreme paranoia that has escalated massively over the last four weeks (he has Parkinsons as well as Vascular Dementia - paranoia has been diagnosed as Parkinson's related), going walkabout from rest home, fears for his and my life, can't sleep, eat or relax, etc. He has also become profoundly incontinent - hospital are testing for UTI - apparently this can affect the brain. Has anybody else eber heard of this? Worried sick. Also - while in hospital does dad cease to be entitled to DLA - not sure about this one but I'm sure that one (at least) of you wonderful people will know!!
