Mum has had mixed dementia for 3 years and I have cared for her. She has lived in her own home until 12 weeks ago where she was sectioned due to behavioural problems. She is still there and here dementia has got worse. She has had 2 falls since being there one causing her to be in hospital 5 days with a small bleed. Who knows whats going to happen. Reality is that no way can she go home but at the minute still not totally stabilised, She has lost weight and now on supplements, doesn't sleep great at night although she has calmed a bit on the Risperidone (although I am not a fan!!!). Christmas is coming up and it looks like being the first Christmas ever .....and I am 55 that we have not had Christmas dinner with her. For the past 8 years since dad died she has stayed with us for 4 days. At the minute I am so stressed, emotional and cant stop crying (feel such a whimp). Does anyone else feel like this??? This is such a cruel disease.
