Mum's had Alzheimers since 2011. She's done very well and had quality of life for the most part. She lives with her husband and the last 6 months the pressure has increased. I have mum with me for on my two days off a week and my husband and I often have mum and husband for dinner at weekend. So my life revolves around my job and looking after mum. We've all coped well but lately mum's has deteriorated. She's desperately trying (too hard) to appear normal. But although she looks lovely, hair and makeup she is totally mixed up about everything and remembers nothing. Our conversations consist of me trying to make everything normal to make her feel secure. She can no longer do anything alone or even be at home alone, as shd would leave vooker on or be a danger to herself I'm exhausted. I'm sure her husband won't be able to cope much longer then she will come and live with me and my husband and I'll give up my job. Any body got any idea what stage she is at?
