<t>Sarniajoy,<br/> <br/> There was a patient in my husband's ward who had suffered brain damage from a haemmorhage. It was tragic as he was in his 40's with two young children. He was doubly incontinent and was almost like a baby but was mobile. Eventually after he was discharged, his wife couldn't ...
<t>.[/quote]<br/> <br/> Dear Rosemary,<br/> <br/> I feel washed out this morning. Although I sleep well, I still waken up tired.<br/> <br/> I've looked at Rethink and the post you suggested and there are lots of people there with similar problems but, as you say, due to different circumstances. I wi...
Fourmerk, I can't begin to understand what you're going through. I've heard many carers talk about having to cope with a stranger in the body of someone they love, but I'm fortunate so far in that it hasn't happened to anyone in my family so far. Many people with brain injuries, dementia, or anythi...
<t>but I don't post much. I read what you are all going through and I don't know how you all cope. You make me feel that I am selfish, but I need to talk to people who might understand. My friends don't and I feel so alone. Please don't think badly of me when you've read this.<br/> <br/> My husband ...

On the other hand, a woman whose husband had dementia told some of her story about her husband's demands on her. It...
Thank you, Annie, for the advice. This forum seems so helpful and friendly.

I will read the legislation.

<t>I would be interested to "speak" to other carers. My husband had an accident and has severe brain damage. Physically he is fine and people who meet him think he is fine now, but he is a different person but with his long term memory intact. <br/> <br/> He has no insight into his disabilities and ...
I think in your situation I'd seek legal advice from a solicitor specialising in this area, you might, depending on your circumstances, be able to get advice free. You might also want to look at the government's publications on the Mental Incapacity Act 2005, I assume the social workers are referin...
Hello FourMerk A warm welcome to the forum! I haven't got alot of time right now as Mum has just woke up, but I would get onto your Social Worker or Carers Development Officer, tell them that your husband needs stimulation during the day and ask is there any centres that he could attend in your are...
