I started this blog to help me come to terms with my mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease. It’s selfish in the sense that it works for me but I hope that it might be of interest or use to others in a similar position.
Dementia is the cruellest of conditions and it’s affecting more and more people. There is help out there, particularly from charities but my experiences have led me to believe that successive governments have chosen to ignore the enormous impact care for those with dementia will have on us all in the future. If I can play a very small part in forcing those in positions of authority to take notice, the experiences of my family will have some positive outcome.
