I think my Mum has Alzheimer's. We finally got her to go to the GP, but her partner is fighting all the way, although he did take her to the doctors. He needs help as well, having had several strokes. My sister and I have tried talking to the doctor, but with no joy. They don't want to know anything we have to say, just listen to Mum and her partner who say everything is fine. We know it's not. She is very confused most of the time, forgetting things, her personality has changed, lost all interested in all aspects of life.
While we don't want to interfere, and on the surface, they seem to be coping. It's the medication that really concerns us. She is in a complete muddle about taking her drugs (other problems) and her partner, who we asked to help her, now seems to be overdosing her. What can we do? Who can we contact to say all is not well. They need help now, not when they hit rock bottom, although that's not too far off!
It's heart breaking, just having to watch her struggle, when we know there is help out there. Neither of them will let us anywhere near now. Her partner is very anti us now and is causing big problems, which obviously, not helping Mum one bit!
Anybody got any suggestions, we know we are not the first to be in position and sadly won't be the last!
