I haven’t posted here for some time, but I do read the threads and realise that we are in the early stages of this horrible Alzheimer’s journey. My partner is two years after diagnosis, and we are managing, not normal, but managing. After dinner is a confusing time. My partner starts to look for something, he is convinced he needs to search, and he does. Tonight it was a watch. He doesn’t wear a watch, never has done, but he searched every room looking for it. Sometimes he sees animals in objects. The fireside brush can be a bird, there is someone out in the driveway etc. Can anyone advise how to deal with this. I try not to say,no, you don’t wear a watch, or that’s a brush! He looks at me sometimes as if I confuse him, and it’s always me who lost the object! Exhausted he goes to bed around 7.30 pm, and generally sleeps well with medication( mirtazapine) it’s a help just to share this, but perhaps things are moving on. Is this a common experience?
