My mum has been diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia. As I am only child with no close family all care and help is coming from only me. I am physically and mentally struggling as I have fought with all of the services. It took me just over a year to get someone to listen to my concerns then it took 6 months for social services to become involved. I have given mums financial information that I have access to and have been told that they cannot give me any confirmation of what they can do until I can get the last bank statement. I am in the final stages of the LPA so I cannot go to the bank yet. I feel that I may be better just looking at self funding ourselves with the money mum has available. Where is the best place to go to get the independent financial advise that I need to make this decision. I have been given help in the form of a career coming in morning and night this was after mum spent two weeks in respite care and they confirmed that mum was a lot further along than had been identified. Mum is going to day centre 4 days a week. We are funding some of this. This only happened after I kept explaining that mum was just walking the streets all day when I was at work.
