  5. Recent diagnosis

    Last week we received the news that my dad has early onset dementia. He is 56, soon to be 57. At the moment he is ok, but struggles with simple tasks eg time, money, and lacks confidence in things like driving.

  11. Forgetting diagnosis, should I remind him?

    My OH has early onset AD but he constantly forgets, or thinks he has got better, or that he is part of a giant experiment/conspiracy. Some of these ideas are harmful to his self esteem, so so far I have tried to be straight and honest, particularly since we still have lots more medical appointments...
