Hi All It has been a while since I have been on the site, which is a good thing as my father has been ok! well as much as you can be with early alzheimers!! However a trip to the memory clinic who have not seen my father for 18 months and of course he scored lower than he did last time we went. But really to me he seems no different at all but is that because I see him everyday to give him his tablets?? I asked the Psychiatrist does he seem very different to you? has he lost weight? He said no but can he really remember 18 months ago?? He has obviously changed or his score would not have been lower. I dont know. He suggested that I contact social services in the New year to see if they can means access him to see if he is entitiled to anything else, I am not sure what this means, can anyone elaborate? Christmas makes him a little hyper with the present buying! But perhapes it does to all of us!!!! I sound like scrooge!!
