My mother will be 99 on 13th July 2021 - she has had memory problems soon after she turned 90 and was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2016. Up until now, my sister, Dad and I have enabled her to continue living in her own home up and she nor we want her to go into a home. However, since my Dad died in 2019 we take it in turns to stay with her (including overnight) but it is starting to put a strain on us being constantly responsible for her care.
