Dementia: ‘Sparks Will Fly’

I have no doubt that there will be some casualties from the Local Authority’s DOLs Application.  It was an appalling document: calling my wife ‘Mary’ on one occasion and also stating that she was my ‘father’. When you see the level of seniority that has approved the document it becomes a real concern.

The Application was an inappropriate legal remedy.  I don’t need the Mental Capacity Act to tell me to keep my wife safe.  I’m quite capable of ensuring that her welfare is protected at all times without an order under the MCA.  This law is an ass and words fail me to describe those who processed the Court Application!

I have been assured I will get a written apology for this mess: an explanation would also be a reasonable expectation.

N.B. I have posted the above at 8pm as sometimes it is important to get a bad taste out of your mouth.  Some really good things have happened this week and I will share these in the morning

About Remember Me

I am a retired adult educator. My wife had a stroke in February 2014 and now has mixed dementia. Her recovery from stroke has been exceptional apart from 50% loss of peripheral vision and vascular damage. 'Dharma For Dementia' is my approach to being Maureem's Care Partner: it aims to end the suffering of 'Prescribed Disengagement' (Swaffer) .
