Welcome to TP Forester. You will get great support here. I doubt whether there's a TP member who has not been scared at some times during the journey.Hello to you all. I have recently become a Carer for my partner's mum. She is 90 and has recently been diagnosed with Dementia and I am awaiting a full diagnosis. I am scared. A lovely independant woman is disappearing. Thank goodness you are all here to talk to. Thank you xxx
Welcome to TP wachowt. You can be sure of a wealth of support and information on TP.A year ago I moved in with my mum in her housing association home in Bicester to care for her as she has dementia. A brain scan was inconclusive but it could be Alzheimer's or vascular or a combination and she sees a specialist.
I will ask for more information on the appropriate forum.
Thanks to all of you for being here.
Then unfortunately it's likely she'll struggle on holiday.I guess she is OK when she is inside - just out and about she gets disorientated and worried about getting lost.
Hi Lin and welcome to TP. Your English is excellent, so please don't let that stop you from posting. Yes, your experiences with professional services might be different in Germany, but I'm sure many of us would be keen to hear what support is available in Germany for people with dementia and their carers.Hi Everybody,
I am new here but have been reading the forums for quite a while. Both my parents suffer from AD, and I am the sole carer. Mum is in an advanced stage, and dad in the very beginning. I probably won't contribute much here; everything I want to say usually has already been said much more elaborate, more concise, and wittier by someone else. Besides that, I am from Germany; many things around the professional services run a bit different here (and then, my English is not good, so please bear with me).
But I wanted to take the chance to thank everybody for their open and informative accounts and the countless good suggestions and advice. I take a lot of strength from reading all your reports especially in times of crisis – which seem to increase exponentially these days. Well.
Take care, Lin
