My adult daughter is on the autistic spectrum and about to blow a fuse tonight! Yesterday she found and reunited a lost cat with its owner. it had been missing for a week. There were posters everywhere offering £100 reward for safe return. The owner just said “thanks” And left. Daughter then kept on...
It’s a horrible time for you Susan and I’ve been there. Sounds very much to me like she has dementia like my Mum. Are you going to seek a diagnosis? We did all the thing of having carers come in in the mornings to help her shower, dress etc and that worked OK for several months as we both would have...
In that case, you need to talk to mum. My son with learning difficulties has a "Cashplus Gold Card". I pay money from his savings account every week into this card. When there is no money left on the card, it doesn't work, no overdraft. I know you don't want this to happen to mum, but honestly, it'...

As others have said you really do need to arrange for her to have a weekly amount available to her so she doesn’t lose the lot. my friend had to do this with her Dad who had dementia, lived alone and got through many thousands before she reali...

Dad is locked down in his care home. We have been very lucky judging by other posts in that we have been able to visit in the garden several times a week. However I'm concerned that once the colder weather comes in Dad will only be allowed one visit a week as this will need to be indoors. Therefore...
Hi I visited my Brother on Thurs (garden visit 15 mins) and the Care Assistant said all visits had been cancelled the day before because of weather, I said what happens to visits in the Winter? She said who knows we might go back to no visits if the Government advises :( She wasn't really allowed t...

In our area, the New Forest, they built some "extra care" housing for people coming out of long stay hospitals. However, they were only paying staff minimum wage, so no recognition of the very specialist care these people needed. They could earn more in Tesco! The needs of those with learning diffi...
