Now Mum with early dementia lives near me with a live-in carer (employed direct with a contract) as Mum is disabled from a bad fall. Mum is lovely and we get on very well. (Sadly not the same with my sister and brother in law who sent me an injunction letter after an argument 2 years ago.) The situation has greatly worsened as the carer is stirring it, and has been at times verbally abusive to me. My mother does not like her carer and we need to look at how to replace her. Anyone else had a similar problem?
