hi all my mother in law starts her dialysis on Monday and we are doing it at home as she lives with us. she is 80 years old and we are just hoping we have made the right decision as she also has alzheimers. we know that 3 trips a week to the hospital would be very daunting for her. we would be grateful of any help or suggestions as the best way to learn is from people who have already been through it. we are concerned with how mum will react, does this kind of treatment take a lot out of you, making sure she gets no infections, the cost of running the machine 10 hours a night etc. we are also a little scared ourselves. does mum need disconnecting from the machine when she goes to the bathroom at night. sorry if I am covering the same thing twice got so many questions so any help gratefully recieved
