    Hi all,

    So as the title suggests, this is about navigation of social and physical transition, where and elderly relative has the beginnings of dementia.


    I haven’t got advice but definitely need some for myself. Has anyone experienced this tricky situation. Atm this could be a major stumbling block for my transition as the UK requires you to socially transition (usually practice) for 2 years before they prescribe Hrt. But living with dementia would mean having to come out regularly which is a stress I’d rather not have to bare.

    So how do you do it? Did you do it? Or is it. Just a mess that can’t be untangled…?

      Emily, living in the ‘Colonies’, I can’t give you much advice on how to handle your situation as it relates to UK law. In mys situation (I’m 64), I have an 85 year old mother that lives with me. She doesn’t have ‘dementia’ per se, but I can see the old age related signs of it. I came out to her a few years ago, and she has been great with it. This might be a good topic for discussion with a therapist if you have one. Sorry I can’t help more (besides some virtual hand holding), but good luck, and I wish you the best. Hugs, Michelle
