I'm so tired of battling through life, I'm 32 with 2 infant school age children. My dad got dementia early and seems to have been symptomatic for 9 years although only diagnosed last year following a water infection. He has shown signs of agression over the last year but the last couple of weeks it's really ramped up. From others past experience, how long have your loved ones been so aggressive for? He's not ready for residential care, it would kill him. We are a caring family with our world turned upside down. Dad has dementia (vascular and Alzheimer's), mum has depression, I had pnd which is now still lingering 4 years on. Mum's mum has vascular dementia. Everytime we think things are on the up, some other drama happens. It sounds so cruel but my dad would be mortified with his behaviour and it's a real struggle to enjoy family the anymore as there is always some incident or another. When will this all end!?
