You may have to be really firm with your Mum about respite etc. I am sad that I wasn't with mine. Maybe just say that you have organised it and this is what is happening? My Mum now has dementia which I think in part was due to disturbed sleep and social isolation. I am not saying this to scare you ...
Chloe - whether you see caring for your Mum as a burden or not, it is a burden if you feel like this. The job you have been doing is an admirable.one. But if you are feeling like this now is the time to seek more help and achieve a better balance for yourself in your life than just caring for Mum. W...
Hey Gary We also waited too long and reached crisis point with my Dad. So definitely better to be proactive, even if he isn't quite there yet. We had a sitting service for Dad before he want into a care home, definitely worth looking at. But I always felt sorry for my Mum that she had to go out to h...
Hey - sorry suggestion not helpful. Yes friend's family Hindu. But hold the thought of that older ladies group. Could you contact them and explain your Mum's reluctance?

Hey I am so sorry you fond yourself in this situation. There should be a social worker at the hospital to help with finding care home place even if you are self funded? Take a big deep breath and feel this will pass. You WILL find a place for her. She WILL be out of this ward. My dad went to a rehab...
Good for you and good for your wife. I am 100% sure she knows you are proud of her, hence the motivation to get up and get on each day. But what a lovely idea to want to mark her progress in some way. How about a photo book? You can put them together online and include meaningful captions and commen...
