I'm new to this? My mum was diagnosed with mci - but what we see and live with is way beyond that. I am her main caregiver feeling very alone. Also mum had uti in January was in hospital 12 weeks with phychosis and delerium. Consultant says because mum had a history of depresssion. It's harder to diagnose and basically what was I pushing it for. Mum has difficulty dressing washing eating - she asks me the same question over and over again. She was a healthy 9stone up until the last 3 months were she has lost a stone and a half. We were sent down the route of a physical problem - even the doctor there said mums eating problems were coming from her mind. She had small vascular changes in her ct scan - iscchemic changes - spelling prob wrong. She scores 64 out of 100 in ace-r test and 21 in mmse. She is with me at mi ute for a week. She wont sleep alone as she is frightened. Daddy lives with her a home. I noticed mammy starting to dote a bit 2 -3 years ago but that is looking back. Its hard to find her in her eyes anymore but when she is with me she is at her happiest. Gosh im so long winded. My question is really why her GP is giving her shots to drink and she says mum has dementia but ultimately she has to work with consultant. Mum cannot walk to shops... full of fear. This is the lonliest illness.
