Thank you for such a wonderful, insightful and helpful response. Everything you have said makes so much sense and you have hit the nail on the head regarding mum.
So far a fantastic experience with the mentor. Already I have more information than I ever received from the GP, aged care representatives, nurses and other caregivers.
Talking with the mentor was very helpful and well worthwhile. Discussed the whole situation with mum, dad, and the rest of the family. I can now see how dementia may have had impact on the whole situation. Thank you so much.
