Hi My Mum was diagnosed with alzheimers two years ago and it seems to becoming more progressive. My father had a stroke and has difficulty speaking so cannot remind her to do things. Over the last few months her personal hygiene has been neglected and I have tried cleaning the house without her knowing as she gets aggressive if I try to do this in her presence. I am now at the stage that I feel she needs some sort of care at home to assist with cleaning and her personal care. Really not sure where I go to start the ball rolling on this - is it Social Services for an assessment. Any help from those who have already gone through this stage would be welcome. I have tried approaching the subject with her but I end up being given abuse which I know she doesn't mean but sometimes it is difficult to suck up and forget. Thanks for taking the time to read.
