Hello and welcome to TP. I hope you find this a friendly, informative and supportive place.Hi, my father has alzheimer's and has rapidly gone down hill in the last few months. His behaviour has become more and more bizzare, and my step-mom and I are barely coping
Welcome to Talking Point. I'm sure you'll find support and understanding here. Have a look through the forums for people who care for someone with dementia and you may find information which helps - if not, post something of your own and ask for help.Hi, I’ve joined this forum in the hope that I might be able to talk to people who are in a similar situation to me. My Dad is 76 and suffers from Alzheimer’s. He has recently had a short spell in hospital with an infection..this was traumatic for everyone as it really exacerbated his confusion- he was agitated, aggressive and uncooperative sometimes which is so unlike him. He’s a gentle loving man who wouldn’t knowingly hurt anyone. It’s heartbreaking to see him deteriorate like this.
Welcome, and I wish you well.Hi Everyone,
I just joined this forum on Friday. My partner has recently been diagnosed with dementia. Reading all the different threads makes me know that I am not alone. I am hopeful that we will be able to get through it. I have been researching a lot lately. I hope to share some of my experiences as well as learn from people on here.
Hello @Jeni-_M, welcome to TP. I hope you find this to be a friendly, informative and supportive place.My mother is 94 and I am her main caregiver. My once wonderfully feisty, intelligent, funny, kind, graceful mother is now a shell of herself and sometimes the pain of it catches me at the throat.
My siblings, who live elsewhere but within easy enough access to this town, have more or less checked out both physically and even in terms of picking up the phone to say hello (to either of us). After years of fretting and raging about this it suddenly occurred to me that I could find community elsewhere....By the way, I am writing from India....It's been wonderfully comforting and less alone-making to read some of the members pieces.
Hello Claire, welcome to TP. I hope you find the site a friendly and supportive place.Hi All, i’m Claire my mum who has just turned 77 has developed dementia symptoms which have steadily increased and worstened over the last 18 months. We are know at a point where mum is having constantly having hallucinations. We still haven’t had our official diagnosis, as she has just had her brain scan. We did see a private neurologist who said he felt it was Lewy Body dementia.
