    Dear Jan,

    Easter Greetings to you and Lyn I remember you and Lyn very well and you have often been in my thoughts. There is no need to apologise for not being present on Talking Point. We all have to dip in and out as our needs change. It does sound very positive that you have some support in your local community.

    I can imagine the upheaval and stress of moving house. I have one up for sale at the moment and I know what that's like and I'm not managing someone with a dementia!!

    I hope that you will soon settle back here and that you will continue to get the help and support that you need.

    GOOD LUCK with the driving lessons Let us know when you pass - we'll celebrate

    Wife and Carer

    Hello Jan

    Welcome back to TP. It`s good to see you here again .

    I hope Lyn coped with the move and didn`t have problems relating to his new home. A bungalow will make life so much easier for you. xx

    Hi Jan,
    I read your thread because you posted on the Younger People with Dementia.
    I am a little selfish as I think I am where you were three years ago.
    My husband is 54 years old and has been unwell for over two years - we still have no diagnosis - seen by neurologist and neuro psychologist 18 months ago. We have finally had a referral to see psychiatrist and I am becoming rather impatient as I would like you also like to move to a bungalow while my husband still is able to take on the change in environment.
    My husband has had numerous scans and I dont understand why we cant have a diagnosis.
    Please are you able to tell me how you finely got a diagnosis for your husband? Which profession was happy to commit to the diagnosis and who told you i.e GP or consultant and were you both told? We have two teenage children and they both seam to have a greater need to know to enable to give them a better understanding.
    Thanks Jan and all the best
    Lis x
