Never heard of them and would be very suspicious of them.

Hi Doug, this website is primarily for people caring for a family member or friend; rather than someone who requires support. Although of course some people on the spectrum are also carers.

I am very much a cat lover but yes, I can see both sides! Especially with regard to the dander that cats shed, and the risk to people with allergies. But surely dogs shed too?
I thought that too, Helena, but haven't researched it.

Coolcar, you have done the right thing. As long as services are aware she is home alone and requiring support then you have done all you need to do. Please don't go back or you will be trapped and in danger once more. Unfortunately, people in denial like your Mum often have to hit rock bottom to acc...

Hi Michael, try and be angry with the dementia rather than with your Mum. Remember she didn't chose to have it.

Some great advice from Breezey. When I had my second hip operation my headteacher (boss) at the time kept threatening me wi...
HI Guy, welcome to the forum. I agree with Charles' advice. You definitely need support. Here is some information on getting support for your Mum https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advice/practical-support/getting-care-and-support/needs-assessment and for yourself https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-ad...
Hi Nykola, Welcome to the forum. It took me many years to recognise that I was both a parent and also a carer to S. What we do is over and beyond what an ordinary parent does for their child. It sounds like you have done an amazing job as your adult child lives independently and has a family of thei...
