Thanks for the link I have just read it.
Seems like everyone’s dementia and decline is unique to them.
My Mum had the Addenbrooke cognitive examination test in August 2016 and scored 51/100 she was retested in March 2018 and scored 34/100... I know that she has in recent months steadily declined , the doctor has asked for her to be assessed again. Is her decline in line with what you would expect for...
My Dad is 84 years old and has Vascular Parkinson’s so actually can’t get into a wheelchair unless I put him in it with rotunda..otherwise he is just sat in his recliner or bed. They own their own house but don’t have over £30 grand savings but Dad gets a good pension so contributes £1,800 every 4 w...
Thanks guys, basically what I thought.. That were both reviewed couple of weeks ago and I asked for extra care for Mum although I didn’t realise what she was like at night till I stayed! Mum doesn’t have capacity and get the impression from LA that they are more than happy to do nothing as I do so m...

Sur...
Thanks for the reply, that’s good news as every little bit helps! Mum was diagnosed in December 2016 can’t see the council backdating till the, shame this information about reduction is kept so quiet as had no clue about it till recently.
I was just wondering if my Mother is eligible for council tax reduction due to her dementia, my Dad has Vascular Parkinson’s and they live together but seem to remember hearing something about 25%discount as dementia person not counted?
Would be grateful if anyone knows the answer.
Thanks
Mum seems to be slipping further and further away but I can see her trying to hold on with all her might... the saddest thing is, she tells me she’s getting worse, she knows she’s going. She seems to have a while when she’s more stable then suddenly things decline which happens more regularly , I’m ...
I finally decided to look into Carers Allowance and the criteria needed in order to claim it... what a joke! I look after both my parents, they do have 4x care calls a day , but, obviously things like Dad being put in his wheelchair so he can get to his books and taken outside for fresh air etc are ...
