Firstly, thank you for the support and advice just reading these forum threads have provided lately. What a wonderful group of people!
My mother is 62 and in the late stages of rapidly progressive Parkinson’s. Very sadly she does not respond to treatment for long or sometimes at all, although she has been brave enough to give everything a go!
In addition to severely restricted mobility, she is now suffering with increasingly severe symptoms of dementia. My father is retired and does a brilliant job of looking after her but I am worried it is getting too much and think they would both benefit from some extra help.
I was just wondering if it is likely whether we will receive any funding for this and whether it is worth doing a local authority care assessment? Any experience or advice you can share will be greatly appreciated!
