    Bedtime

    My other half has begun to wet himself when he doesn't get to the loo quickly enough. I noticed that he keeps changing his pj bottoms. Then last night he got out to go to the toilet, I woke to find him urinating onto his chest of drawers!:eek: I moved the chest of drawers this morning and...

    I do have LPA, I think I'll give them a ring and find out what can be done.

    Anger at loss of driving licence

    It's strange because my husband can barely string a comprehensible sentence together but yesterday he sat in the passenger seat and directed me to an old address of ours. He couldn't explain why or where we were going but directed me correctly. He has mobility issues too, which make him unsafe...

    Anger at loss of driving licence

    We only have one car, it's his! I keep wondering about changing it but it's on Motability and I'm uncertain if it can be changed during the contract.

    Anger at loss of driving licence

    I'm having the exact same problem:mad:. My husband lost his licence this time last year and he's never gotten over it. Just lately he's nagging me at least a couple of hours each day... it came to a head again today. He's wanting to fil in another form to reapply for his licence except he can't...

    Changing Pants and Socks

    I'm having a similar problem with my husband. He used to be clean-shaven and would shower at least every other day. He used to love getting dressed up in smart clothes but now I have a struggle to get him to have a shower. Last week I got him to have a soak in the bath and shaved him whilst he...

    Dementia phones

    Just bought my OH an easy to use mobile from Binatone. He still can't seem to use it, I've written down instructions... a 3 step process, but he's still struggling. It's the phones fault of course!:D It only has two number in it!

    A small benefit.

    I'm trying to remember not to give choices! If I ask if he'd like this or that for supper, he just replies 'what are you having? I'll have the same.' :rolleyes:

    The hidden cost of Alzheimers

    Hi John, My OH is the same, walks around the house in a short-sleeved polo top and complains about the cold, hence our heating has been on constantly. It doesn't help that I'm constantly hot. He complains if he has to wear a cardigan. We have the same with food waste too, he's started to throw...

    Hi Laura, Yes, I think you're right, it is his way of being in control. He's always hated the way doctors just assume that you'll do as they say without question. He doesn't see the point in dragging it all out to only end up with the same outcome. I do understand and it may be a blessing in...

    Hi Canary, It's my OH with the kidney failure. The treatment options are all invasive in one way or another. There's no guarantee that it will be successful either. I know that he won't cope with an operation. He's never stayed in a hospital overnight. He needs a new shoulder - desperately -...

    Support for our son

    I managed to get him to the GP. The GP was lovely and spent around an hour trying to explain everything and the consequences of not having any treatment. I took my son out for the day yesterday, left OH to ponder everything. But last night he was just as adamant that he's had enough... I feel...

    Glad that you're all safe! Go out with a bang! as they say... My OH is still driving, but because he's been feeling unwell recently, he's been staying in whilst my son and I go out. However, things will inevitably change sooner than he thinks. He's just been diagnosed with chronic kidney...

    It's in my head!

    Thank you Amy in the US! I liked your thoughts on acting! I tried that yesterday after OH took offence at me being slightly worried about money. I quickly reassured him that he'd helped me and put my mind at rest and let's not discuss it anymore... all untrue but did the trick.
