I rang the local branch of the Alzheimer's Society today. Wanted to know if someone could help with an Attendence allowance appeal, she has put me in touch with someone who will come and help with and can help with the Powerof Attorney.
On top of that she told me about local Memory Cafes and strategies to get Mum there, emphasised importance of me having Carer's assessment, registering as carer with GP, told me about the council tax reduction and emailed it all through straight after our conversational is going to ring me in two weeks to see how things are going.
I am really glad I picked up the phone and just wanted to make sure anyone else new to the whole Dementia thing knows about them.
