It's been almost a year since I last posted and I feel I owe you lovely people an apology and an update on how things have progressed with my mum (who was sectioned just before christmas 2013) When mum was admitted to the local hospital she was terrified of her AD symptoms and on the verge of a breakdown, it was extremely painful to see the fear and torment in her eyes. The hospital were wonderful with her, as were the Social Services who moved her to a lovely Home in our nearest town where THE CARERS CARE. She has travelled quite a bit further down Alzheimer's road since then and is now thankfully unaware of her condition. It's funny but in a strange way, I feel I've sort of got my mum back. We can sit peacefully together now whilst I do her nails or whatever. I am so grateful to the NHS and the SS for making this happen and although you forum members don't know me and me mam from Adam, I just wanted to pass on a bit of good news to all you fellow travellers.
