My mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2010. This is a blog about coming to terms with her absent mind.

A small catch-up

Just a quick update to let you know that all is fine. Ma is eating reasonably well although she does still have her arsey days and bar the continual talking and questioning (and subsequent bleeding ears by 6pm) she seems quite happy and contented. This is the second week of two days at the day centre and that seems to be going well plus the carers coming in is an absolute Godsend, making things a bit easier for me.

I've quite lax about updating in here and also owe quite a few people replies to emails but this week has taken its toll emotionally with Uncle Vic's funeral on Tuesday so I'm given myself a couple of days off but promise to catch up with it all tomorrow.


I'm still blipping though. Believe it or not, I sold a few photos today and made £30 for the Dementia CafĂ©. Go me. (quietly thrilled tbh).


  1. Glad you're both doing ok, Bee xx

  2. Hi Bee, Have just joined your blog and find it incredibly moving. having nursed my Dad at home until he died on 6th April your comments about the care and hospital services in Bury strike lots of chords. Now have the task of caring for Mum who is in early stages of dementia, whilst trying to hold down a job and run my own household. Wish me luck! Think you will be my inspiration!
