Re: Husband has Dementia

Deenie, everything Deb wrote is spot on. Also, hopefully his dr. has recommended that he not drive? Individuals with AZ have good days and bad days where they sometimes can't remember where they are, where they're going, how to operate a car. Their decision making can be slower along with their response time.

Definitely look into your POA, medical and financial. At some point, he may need to see an elder care dr. to do an memory test to provide markers for checking his memory in the future. They seem to have a better understanding of AZ than just a regular dr.

Are your children aware of this? Are they going to be able to help you navigate this?
I hope that they will help relieve you some. Doing it by yourself is difficult. You are in my prayers
