    Brought a lump to my throat as my mum has had dementia for about 15 years and hasn't spoken a word for the last 5 years,one of her carers started singing to her about 4 years ago and my mum started singing along with her,when the carer told me i found it hard to believe until i heard it for myself i was gobsmacked

    I've just seen this on Faceache and it reminded me of my dear old Mum, who went batty at the end. Dementia and Alzheimer's are particularly horrible diseases for patient and families alike.

    The worst ever disease you ever could imagine, after my Su's father died 7 years ago we realized that her mother was far worse than we expected. As i was self employed i started caring for her in my free time and we moved house to be closer to my parents as my father has dementia as well and moved Su's mum in with us. Sadly we lost her just over 2 years ago but she was 91 and a smoker bless her, i miss her swearing at people passing our house and all the politically wrong things she would say to people when we were out shopping lol. My mother who had been helping out with looking after my father then suddenly died 2 years ago out of the blue from pancreatic cancer in 6 weeks from diagnosis, now i just care for my father who has gone down hill very fast. He is happy in his own little confused world and has no clue who i am or even how to clean or feed himself, but just like Su's mother he can still swear though as every morning i am greeted by hello wanker i haven't seen you for ages lol.
