  1. My mother had a stroke almost twelve years ago and has been unable to walk, speak clearly or use her right arm and hand ever since.
    In 2015 she reached for her phone, fell out of her chair and suffered a brain bleed.

    Now, she has difficulty swallowing and processing food through her digestive system. She has water and lung infections each year. Her memory is faulty and extremely poor when she has a water infection. She has disturbed sleep and speaks to herself about past troubles she rode with equanimity at the time – speaks very clearly during the night. She does not eat unless food is fed to her. She was distressed when I asked her to recall her children’s names and birthdays- yet she has always had an excellent memory and been the most devoted of mothers. Does she have dementia?

    • Hello Agnes,

      If your mother is showing signs of dementia, we encourage that she speaks with her GP. You can support your mother with this and future appointments. Please remember, there are other reasons that your mother may be experiencing memory loss. By contacting your mother’s GP, a specialist will be able to rule out other conditions if it is dementia, and provide all help needed. We will also always be a call away.

      We hope this helps,
      Lifeline24

Arrived very quickly, next day delivery. Easy to install. Had a little trouble getting the wrist operation up and running, but staff very helpful on the helpline. Gives brother and I peace of mind that if Dad were to have a fall we would be notified quickly.

Prompt delivery , easy set up and excellent service.It’s given me more confidence knowing that help is only a call away for my Mum, especially when she is very isolated in the pandemic.

Fantastic service. Couldn’t ask for more. I know first hand how good the service is as my dad had a fall and within minutes lifeline had called for an ambulance and had notified me about it. Lifeline then called me back to check on how my dad was. Very happy to have this for both my parents.
