My mum was diagnosed in December last year, she lives with me and has done for just over 2 years since my dad passed away. Although she did not seem to have dementia then her memory has deterioated and I took her to be assessed last year Over Christmas was really he first time ever I accepted a little help with respite for a week in January and a sitting service once a week and also found a lovely day centre that she started going to about 3 weeks before the Coronavirus happened, my sister also took a day off once a fortnight to help and came round in the evenings now and again . Now everything has come to a stop and no-one can visit as my mum also shields due to COPD. This is having a terrible impact on her and me. I know that lack of stimulation is not helping,I try and get her doing things but she is limited as to what she can do. The last few nights have been a nightmare , trying to get out the house, shouting at me, calling for help, looking for her mum & dad. Does the dementia get worse as quick as this , the episodes seem to be getting more and more and are lasting for longer and longer. Mum used to be quite good in the mornings but is even confused when she gets up. I did take her out today for the first time in 10 weeks so I am hoping that helps.Anyone else having these problems, is it the dementia progressing.
