Limp and soggy!,
This review is from: Keeping Mum: Caring for Someone with Dementia (Paperback)
Mum has recently been diagnosed with Dementia. It's been hell trying to care for her, so my sister and I decided to buy some books about other peoples experiences, so we could learn from their experiences. I picked this one because it was written by a lady who cared for her mum who had dementia. I found this book depressing because our mum is not a "Jolly old Bat" as the author describes her mum, our mum is anything but! if your Dementia sufferer is like our mum, stubborn,frustratingly independant and delusional not to mention a manic depressive at the best of times; you will not find solace, information or help in this book.

Dear Queen Bee
Am interested in your comments. Can you recommend a book you did find helpful?

You and me, Queen Bee. I'm glad you actually got a diagnosis! I'm far from that and having to consider taking legal action for anyone to notice what's happening here at all. But I do love this book. Any information is better than none. I'm dealing with a husband who is everything but joyful. His delusions are now becoming dangerous. I am completely alone. Everyone has turned their backs who used to visit. Daycare isn't an option. Nightmares are becoming constant. I feel for you and I care how you feel. withering words at best. I'm so sorry for you. Thank you for having the guts to write your review.
