    Bruce My husband doesn't want to stop moving either. Although he is not as bad off as your wife seems, for which I'm truly sorry, my husband wont sit for any longer than a minute if I'm lucky. I know your wife is in good hands under your care and her Dr's but a site I visit here at home...

    Doreen Good for you both! What did he give your husband? Maybe it's something I can suggest to my husbands Neuro to try. I'm at my wits end here.

    Doreen So young! My husband was diagnoised in 2000 at the age of 52. He seemed to stay level there for a while, but in the past 4 months I can really see a decline. I as well am trying to get a sleeping aide for Larry. He is constantly walking around the house, never sits for more than 2...

    Hi Doreen, I'm new to this forum so I'm hoping I'm doing this correctly. When my husband was first diagnoised he was put on Aricept, was on it for only a few months then was put on Execlon. Neither seemed to be doing any good, and at that time my husband was still coherent enough to make his...
