Hi Everyone, my name is Christopher, i'm 21 and I live in Brisbane Australia. My Grandmother has been in Poland 9 Months now nursing her Mother who suffers from Dementia. I hpone my Grandmother daily to see how she is coping looking after her Mother and it seems the situation is getting worse day by day. Her Mother has become aggressive towards her, thinks the Germans are still in Poland and are coming to kill them, tells my grandmother not to touch the telephone or anything else in the house as it belongs to other people. She thinks that Australia has blown up and that we are all dead, and when she hears my voice on the telephone, I ask her if she understands and she says yes then starts crying, my grandmother says she cries alot for no real reason. The sad thing is that there is no care for people in Poland, there are no aged-care facilities and the hospitals don't take people just because they suffer from Dementia. If my Grandmother left Poland my Great-Grandmother would surely die as no one else can handle looking after her. I get really worried for my Grandmother and her mother sleeps so little and keeps her up through the night, an aunt from Poland wrote us a letter recentely saying that she is concerned for my Grandmother, the situation is draining her so much and her health is suffering. My Grandmother cant leave her Mother, its such a terrible predigament to be in. The Doctors wont give any Dementia medication, there is just no funding for it, all they have given are Drops of Haloperidol which dont seem to be doing much. I'm a Medical Student in Australia and have managed to send my Grandmother Mirtazapine (Remeron) to help my Great-Grandmother sleep and eat better, she has been on it for about a week now and its not really doing much, its not helping the depressioin from the dementia, or her sleep though she eats a little more. What stage is my Great-Grandmother at? Will she live much longer with this illness? She is 87. My Grandmother is at her wits end and doesn't know what to do, she is finding it so hard to cope and she has been there so long looking after her Mother with no support. I'm worried what its doing to my Grandmothers health looking after her Mother, she cant leave her and she wont, she is so loyal to her Mother and would do anything for her family. People that live in Australia, England, United States really are so lucky, compared to people that live in Poland, the care they get is amazing. Poland offers nothing to its people.
