    Hi everyone.

    Just wanted to chat about how things are going with mum.
    I have finally got her to agree to see the doctor, so we are going this Tuesday coming. She agreed that she does need some help, and also to talk to the doctor with regards to the loss of dad.

    She told me that someone came to see her about 3 months ago with regards to her AD and that they would come again in 6 months time :confused: Surely that can't be right?

    She is starting to make new friends where she is living now and they are all of a similar age to her. She has her good days, and then her bad days - that is when I feel so guilty that I can't be with her every day. I am trying not to feel guilty, and lilke you all said before, I am doing everything I possibly can.

    I will let you know how Tuesday goes, and hopefully we can then start to get some help.

    Love
    Michele xx
