Hi my dad died of dementia in December. Beginning to end 5 years and it was only really bad for the last 3 months. But, from the day he was diagnosed I hoped and prayed a heart attack would take him. Yanbu.

Thank you for the link, Dizzy, I had not heard of admiral nurses.
We are in Scotland, but DSiL is in England and I am not entirely convinced that she fully understand what she will be in for, looking after DMiL at home sad.

Sorry for your loss, Daily - it's just an awful cruel condition.

So sorry for the whole situation. Hope she stays as comfortable as possible, and not too distressed.

Look after yourselves too, won't you? It's so very hard on everyone.
