My beautiful Mum died last October from dementia. I believe she just gave up. Both she and my stepfather were 85 and both he and I continually struggled to get her the care she needed at home. A care home was not even an option following the cessation of social care assessments by our local authority during the first lockdown. So we just had to cope and do the best we could. Advanced Dementia is a disease and the absence of a professional care system is a national disgrace. This can be fixed!!
