My mother is 80 and insists on caring for my father at home. His dementia has made him very insecure/ anxious and he follows her around everywhere even banging on the door of the toilet. My brother and I do what we can to try and give her some respite from this but it's not enough. Does anyone know of or have used volunteers who would come and sit with dad for a couple of hours so mum could do something for herself. We tried a local day centre but after 3 visits dad was asked to leave as they didn't have enough staff to keep and eye on him and stop him from leaving to look for mum.
