but it made me wonder how do I tell my grandmother that something important has happened, if she is unable to retain that information? You tell her in the same way that you would tell anyone else - just be prepared to do it again tomorrow, and the next day, and so on ad infinitum. I can guarantee i...
I use one of those long slim *month to view* calendars pinned to the wall in the kitchen, appointments are kept on there, along with the actual letter kept behind the calendar. Monthly prescriptions are actually dispensed to cover 28 days - four weeks - I mark on the calendar when I have to order my...
My wife suffered with restless legs for quite a while when she could still walk, (it's actually gone now that she can no longer move/use her legs).

You are a person with your own rights, it's your life and it's your decision to do as you want with it.
Not sure if it helps, but my caree has a water jug (1.5 litre ) and helps herself from that during the day, (and night), I can see if it's getting low (unusual) and top it up when I've got a moment.
I went in to see my Nan last night and she is completely back to normal again no wandering no saying strange things, she knows everyone who has visited and completely understands everything that is happening to her and it is heartbreaking. This is not unusual with dementia sufferers. They'll have b...
Rest assured, not receiving any form of reply to a job application is the norm these days, I can only go by my son's experience (I was self employed all of my working life) but even with a BSc and an MSc in science he had plenty of ignored applications. Make sure your CV is clear about what you've b...
