My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's approx July 2019. After several visits by people (doctors, nurses, Notts County Council, DWP, Ashfield Council, Social Services) my dad finally got carers the IRIS team for a 3 month period.
They were all lovely, friendly, great timekeepers and really made sure dad was okay.
Late 2019 my mum was diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia, IRIS team took her on too. She was very troublesome, I couldn't cope with her and the team were an absolute godsend. I would like to thank them for their patience with her, I often left the house in tears after coping with my mum's behavior, incidentally she is now in a care home which is best for everyone.
