BB, you can deprive me any time!!! I'm fed up of happy family Christmas adverts too. Not just for my situation, but for anyone who is struggling. Parents feeling guilty and worried,that they haven't enough money for extras, elderly on their own, which isn't their fault. Today in Sainsbury's, after I...
Hello Hannah Welcome to the forum. So glad you have found us. I won't be very much help to you, for which I am sorry. However, I do know there is fast tracking continuing health care. This is for people who need palliative care. It's really worth mentioning to your dad's GP. What an amazing daughter...
Don't think I will ever watch that care programme. Need a distraction not reminders. I'm feeling extra sensitive at the moment. Am luckier than lots, as I have a supportive family. But still at the moment I could cry at adverts, and all sorts of nonsense. ((((((( Massive hug )))))) to all that need ...
It is very hard. Not all nursing homes smell of urine and poo. My husband's doesn't. Rarely do we get a whiff, and that's only because some poor person has had an accident. Soon sorted. On Monday, the activities lady had some more able residents at a table making Xmas decorations. Hubby isn't able o...
Hugs ((( Clare)))
Glad it was a peaceful passing. Take time to look after yourself now.

I hope you had the best sleep ever! Glad it's finished with. Such a double edged sword isn't it. Wanting our loved ones to show unpredictably, memory difficulty etc. Horrible to witness, in front of agencies, but so so needed to prove safeguarding, funding is needed.
Hi John Welcome to the forum. I certainly don't feel you should have split from your wife! Love is love after all, even if rose tinted glasses fade. You have a lot to cope with, and Im wondering if you get to do anything just for yourself? My situation is different to yours ( in a way) as my lovely ...
Thinking of you Ron. I know anticipation of this type of meeting is extremely stressful. Stay calm, ask them to talk in laymen's terms and give you time to answer. I understand your work history means you know the jargon, but sometimes, when it's so personal it can throw you. Glad you won't be on yo...

It's the statement that's made on the forum many times.
NEEDS trump WANTS! Your Mother's needs have increased, and so have yours, as in you need time for yourself and your husband. Actually you have been amazing and your husband sounds as though he has too. Time for you 2 now!
The only reason I would ever want one in hubby's room is if I suspected something dreadful. Then I couldn't watch if, my son in laws would. When I visit, I wouldn't want to be constantly watched. Am usually just watching t v with him, chatting to him about anything. I do tell him I love him, and alt...
