Family units in today’s society, I am aware may not be the ideal. Secrecy, avoidance, suspecting abuse can be only a few things that raise concerns when dealing with family members coming into contact with the impact of Alzheimer’s disease.
When I felt concerned or troubled I spoke to Age concern (now known as Age UK) in confidence. I found them very useful. They listened and made me aware of what I could do which encouraged me, but it also enlightened me to other information and steps that I needed to be aware of.
