Hi Trevor. I've no knowledge or experience of Huntingdon's disease, I apologise for my ignorance, but having quickly looked it up I can see that it is horrible and that you have a hard time in front of you. Have you sourced all the help you can get through your GP and Social services? Do you have ca...

Will it fit under her rising armchair? Yes to attendance allowance, power of attorney, OT, cleaner a...
Thank you both. Yes I will contact GP. It's on my list of 'things to do'. Yes she has pads on all day and night. The problem with doubling up on carers is not mainly the extra cost (all Mum's income goes straight to care now and she's living off her savings) but the extra people. Mum gets tired quic...
Hi all. I am caring for my Mum who is 99 in August. I do have a private care package in place and an amount of equipment from local authority including a 'hospital' bed. I spend an average of 6 hrs a day with her. Mum is pretty good mentally, depending on the time of day but she cannot see very well...
