My lovely mum has Alzheimer’s and as a family we looked after her for as long as we could but it was no longer safe for her to live alone and we were unable to get any suitable help. We have been forced to sell her only asset, her small ex council house to pay for her care home. We are not a wealthy family and mum worked all her life. No other illness forces you to sell the family home so why are dementia sufferers expected to do so. Something needs to change urgently!
