Went up north so I could look after mum so my sister could get away. Mum has dementia, and needs some care.

Seems that easter was a bit confusing for mum, and it was only on the day I came home she knew me. I spent most of the week grieving for the mother I had. Was .lovely to see my old mum back for a few hours before I left for home yesterday morning......I think next time she will not know me at all

Hugs Sharon, it is hard to see our parents fail. I hope you can keep the memories of your Mom as she was, not as she is.

I'm so sorry. My mom is going through the beginning of this with her mom. It worries me for myself and for my husband with me.

I'm so sorry Sharon. We had that with Grandma 15 years ago, and yesterday my Mum forgot that my brother was coming to stay the night with me. It was only Monday that we spoke and I told her, because I knew he wouldn't say anything until the last minute. We laughed about it and she thanked me for telling her. Yesterday bro told her (last minute as expected) and she rang me to check - she'd forgotten.

This is just the beginning. She's been repeating stories that she'd forgotten she'd told me for the last year, but that's kind of understandable. When you don't go out much, you forget who you've told what. But this is new. And it hurts so much, knowing what is coming.

That is sad. We did it with my husbands dad and will do it with my mom.

I am so sorry! I was blessed to not have to go through this with my parents, but two of my cousins died quite young because of it.
I cannot even imagine how hard this must be. Sending good thoughts and hugs for you and everyone else having to deal with this!

Sorry that you are going through this Sharon, it is always such a sad time. I didn't have it with my parents but working in a long term care unit I saw it often.

Thanks Guys!

It was a rather harrowing week. I am going back up to see her in May, so will be interesting to see what the changes are then.
