    My husband was diagnosed with early onset AD earlier this year, and really it was just a 'reason' for his strange behaviours, but this last few weeks i have noticed some more changes, he is quite irritable, miserable in fact, he lacks motivation, he washes up under the tap, no fairy liquid, i...

    Denial

    My husband is 54 and has just been diagnosed with Alzheimers. It came as a real shock to us both. My mother is 86 and has had Alzheimers for over 10 years, so I am familiar with the disease, which doesn't make it easier I may add! My husband, however is in denial. He said he is not going to...
