I saw a dementia adviser from The Alzheimers Society today in connection with my elderly father, who has Alzheimers/dementia. He pointed me to this forum Caring for Dad and my mother, who has physical problems and mild depression, is driving me crazy But reading some posts on here just makes me thank my lucky stars that they aren’t worse. I honestly don’t know how some carers cope. I feel quite ashamed of myself for getting so down about my own challenges and worries when others face much greater problems I shall count my blessings from now onwards. Things could be far worse!
