Hello, had to NC for this as we haven’t talked to all the family yet and there are a few of us that are on here..
My MIL has just had a dementia diagnosis, just from her GP so far but specialist appointments will be happening in due course.
As a family we haven’t had to go through this before and I was wondering what sort of things we could be doing now rather than in the future before the disease progresses and it’s too late?
DH (only child of MIL) already has POA although we haven’t had to make use of this yet but suspect it won’t be long until we have start using the powers.
Is there anything that we should be doing at this early stage, I’m thinking about odd things like eye test for MIL as she might not be able to manage that in the future?
I’m maybe over thinking this and need to just wait and see but I’m not good a watching and waiting!
