Hello Michael,

It sounds like you and your wife have been through a horrific experience. I can only hope that you get some justice.

With respect to you being your brothers full-time carer as per the previous message you should get a care assessment for him and ensure he (and you) get support.

It sounds really tough for you at the moment. Having looked after my dad who had Alzheimers and my disabled mum, I really undersgtand the dilemma that you are facing. If you can't get him into a care home as you state then the next best thing which I can see you've looked at, is to increase the anmo...
