I'm new to site & wud appreciate any info on helping my mum-in-law. She is 63 and has been on exelon for 4years since diagnosis of AD. My 70 yr old f-in-law is her carer and on the last visit to the hospital he wos told that the exelon may be withdrawn next visit as she is now in a critical ?? stages and that he(the consultant) must follow guidelines, unfortunately i missed the appointment due to having twins. My f-in-law is obviously distressed as he is only just coping and is on the egde and all my time is now taken up looking after babies. Wot are the costs of a private prescription etc? I have booked an appointment with our local alzheimers society to find out wot homehelp he can get but he is a very proud somewhat old fashioned gentleman and considers it his duty to see to all her care needs. He also hates the thought of discussing his finances with social services and them taking his hard earned savings. He feels guilty and that he is doing her a dis-service by getting help! My hubby and I are concerned that his health is suffering under the strain especially as over the past few weeks she is having some incontinence problems, aggresive behaviour, refuses to get dressed and has no grip on reality. He also insists on the house being totally spotless as its what she wud of wanted.
