Hello. I am a full time carer for my Mother. My Mother is 84 years old. She suffered a fall last year in which she broke her hip. Before the fall, she would be a little bit forgetful at times but nothing particularly stood out as problematic mentally wise. Her problem was physical. She had arthritis in her back that made it very hard for her to walk. I moved back in with her to help her to manage at home. After the fall however, everything changed very quickly. She suffered from delirium in the hospital and although the delirium passed after a few weeks, it has left her with dementia. We do not yet have a full diagnosis of her condition but we have spoken with three doctors, all of whom have told me that she is unquestionably suffering from a form of dementia. She has fallen so far so quickly. Within three months she has gone from an intelligent woman to someone that needs help in almost all aspects of day to day life. As her son and carer and as someone who loves her very much, I am trying my very best to care for her but it is so very hard. I hope to find advice and encouragement from this forum.
