Im a carer for both parents (separately) sometimes finding it a bit overwhelming. Father has dementia, mother very limited mobility. I also work full time. Hoping to come here for occasional advice, particularly for my Dad as I find dealing with dementia a struggle sometimes, and maybe the odd rant! (hopefully not though!) Feeling better already knowing theres so many of you out there in a similar situation. I have no one in my family/friends circle who understand my situation.
Welcome to the forum. Lots of options possible, but it really depends on the answers to the following questions:-
How old are you, and your parents?
Do you live with them?
Do they own, or rent their home?
What disability benefits are they getting?
Do they have over £46,000 between them (Yes/No)?
Do you need more help?
When did you last have a holiday?!
Welcome to CUK, this is a really supportive forum but for dementia issues I would also recomend the Alzheimer Society’s forum Talking Point
They deal with all types of dementia and not just Alzheimers- I really wish they would change their name!
