Newbie here....Mum cares for Grandma, who we both live with.

My Grandma was diagnosed with having vascular dementia a couple of weeks ago after exhibiting worrying symptoms for over a year beforehand.

I've registered both me and my Mum to this site because I think it might help both of us come to terms with what is going on at the moment (most of the time, I just feel like it's a terrible nightmare that I'm not going to wake up from) and maybe being able to talk to other people who are in similar situations to us may 'normalise' the experience a bit.

Hello and welcome Adele,

My caring situation is different but we still share a lot of commonalities as carers and I'm sure you'll be blessed by the support and encouragement of these forums.

Take care

Debbie
