Only a few day ago my grandad died suddenly from a heart attack. Up to this point he had been caring for my grandmother at home, who has had alzhiemers for a couple of years now. He did this without any help (his choice), although my mum would often help bathe my Grandma as grandad was finding this very difficult. The family is so devasted by my Grandad's death. My grandma is distraught. She is in the early/mid stages of the disease and she is very aware of what has happened. She requires 24 hour care which our family can not provide her with however. A couple of weeks before grandad had his heart attack, he had been unwell and we had to take Granny to a residential home until he got better. This is something grandad never wanted, but he had to accept that he was not well enough to care for her while he was unwell. We thought that grandad would get better and that he would continue to care for granny, as this was what he desperately wanted. Unfortunately, he died suddenly. I'm so worried about my mum. She is grieving badly for my grandad (as we all are) and everytime she visits granny, she asks my mum to take her home with her. My mum hates to think of her mum being in a care home, but for us , there is no other way. My mum is finding it very difficult to cope with the grief of losing her dad and the emotional pressure of seeing granny so upset. Are there any agencies my mum can talk to to help her through this difficult time? Has anybody else ever been in this position?
