Love the Donald Trump link! My second brother, who actually was a bit confused (delirium after hospital stay) but didn't have dementia, would count down from 99 at the speed of light just to prove how clever he was. He did make a couple of mistakes at the end, down to speed rather than inability to ...
Hi Tony, I am not an expert on this and I am sure others will be along to advise you, but it's often said here that the Alzheimers Society has a useful forum and it deals with all forms of dementia, not just Alzheimers: https://www.alzheimers.org.uk I believe it's a slow and confusing process actual...
Absolutely, AyJay, and Helena too. Agree with both of you.
I hope I didn't appear to turn against you, Stephen. I just thought it was worth giving my negative experiences of WFF. But I think your problem was with Ayjay saying 'anyone can cook'. Well, that might be true but I find it really difficult to find time for that even for myself alone, now I am no l...
I'm glad you are all happy with Wiltshire Farm Fords. When my caree was still interested in food, he did not like them. We bought a few and put them in the freezer. The only thing he liked was the puddings and custard - and this was before he only ate sweet things - and puddings and custard were not...
There are wiping devices but I have no idea if they work. Here at the Complete Care Shop (I have no connection to them) under Toileting Aids there is a bottom wiper.

But in that time he was more or less bedridden so I didn't have quite your problems. He was too heavy for me to move. He used a wheelchair but he couldn't move it himself and...
Hi Henrietta,

You are probably right - but seemingly only since 2002, so I am not up to date:

I think you need to contact a solicitor. If the neighbour has taken over that piece of land for a number of years without being challenged, your father will lose the right to it. Sorry, I don't remember how many years. At all events you should remove the fence. Actually, if you did that, you might f...
I agree that legal advice is needed. I am not an expert but my view is that there are two separate issues. If they are tenants in common (as opposed to joint tenants) then in my opinion he can sell, LPA or not. Half (if it is a 59/50 arrangement) is paid to your sister. As for the LPA, can you see t...
