My message is one of advice to other family carers. At the first signs of memory loss, keep a diary for the first few weeks. Go to the GP and insist that they refer your loved one, as time is of the essence in terms of getting a scan and medication. Get a red button. If possible, arrange for power of attorney and third party mandate on bank accounts. If and when you need the services of a care agency, check the Care Quality Commission rating. Accept nothing less than a rating of good.
