 I was chatting recently with a friend of mine about his parents, particularly his concerns about their plans - of lack of - for the future.

They’re only in their 70s – so still young, and certainly not NEEDING to change anything - they live on acreage, they have a coup...

 Our involvement with

#DecodingDementia2019 has helped cement for us, the reason we created MemBo Noticeboard in the first place, and our absolute commitment since then - to help people living with dementia live more independently for longer, and with better quality of...

As I turn 60, and am the primary carer for my 91-year old mum who has Alzheimer’s dementia, I am finding that the discussions I have with friends are very different from the ones we had at 30, 40 and 50.

Why do some people resist the help they need, while others accept it?

With advancing memory loss as the result of Alzheimer’s Dementia, to say that my 91 year-old mum is resistant to help from anyone but her nearest and dearest is an understatement!

But the truth now is...

Recently I’ve had to examine my mindset around asking for help to support my 91-year old mum.

My experience is relevant I think, not just for children caring for elderly parents, but also for others, where the support needs to enable a loved one to remain...
