Hi. My Mum had a serious stroke and came to live with me. In her case she was transferred from the original hospital to a cottage hospital near to me. We were under different authorities. Mum's care plan was arranged in the second hospital. This was three years ago. I looked after Mum with some help...
Hi, I do understand your concerns and if you do feel the carer's is acting in a way that you feel uncomfortable with maybe you could speak to her privately about your concerns. Has she always acted in the same manner?. My husband had vascular dementia and had always been a very tactile person. His c...

I would like to agree with the above posts. BB you are not hard as nails. You are sensible, kind, practical and helpful to so many forum members. You and Jenny gave me such useful advice when I was caring for my mum and husband.

Mum came to live with me and we had OTs and physios in for about 6 months, she didn't recover her mobility b...
This must be so hard for you especially because your wife is so young. My husband is 85 and has vascular dementia,so different situation. He sees people in his bedroom and odd birds in the garden. I just go along with him, but it doesn't worry me at all, although sometimes it is very strange. My hus...
Does that mean you have to inform DWP when your caree goes to respite? Why would you have to tell DWP if you leave your job? Both of these apply in my case, I wonder if I should tell them now!!
