Dementia is one of the most cruel diseases I have come across. Mum had vascular dementia and probably other conditions that weren’t diagnosed. We managed to care for her at home until she suffered a massive embolism after which she went into a nursing home. She became immobile and was fully dependent for all her needs. She had to pay a fortune for care that lacked in an understanding of her as an individual. Heart breaking for her and is as a family. I could go on and on. Wake up government.
