Mum, Dementia and Prison - By Rebecca


Can I just say how proud I am of Prison Widow for bringing up the subject of prisoners families with dementia. My Mother suffers from this awful disease and although she has short term memory loss, she knows that my brother doesn't come to visit her at the Care Home. When she asks where he is, I always tell her that he's working away. I'm not sure whether this is the right thing to do but I just want to protect her. I guess it's similar to telling children the same thing but all I do know is that it is very hard sometimes when we visit her. Thank you Prison Widow for all you do and I am so glad you have brought this subject up. Lots of love from Rebecca ( Stockport ) Via Email.
