Sometimes we are kinder to our pets, and more aware of the dangers of heat stroke, than we are with respect to our elderly and our children.

The heat presents significant challenges for the young and the old, and particularly for people living with dementia.

This morning in bed, my husband and I were discussing the next phase of mum's care - she's 92, still living independently in a Retirement Village - because we underpin everything - but teetering on the edge now, of everything falling in a heap.

Isn't it a relief when a politician follows through with what he or she said he or she would do?

I realise that sounds a little cynical, but I guess, like many people, I've come to not expect this will be the case.

Being kind to someone you love and care for isn't a hard thing to do, but when you are supporting someone with dementia, sometimes, it just becomes overwhelming.

We see my 91-year old mum who has Alzheimer's dementia, three times a week.

On the weekends, we pic...
