I have a dear friend (not me, I promise) who has a terrible dilemma. Her husband was diagnosed with Korsakoff'so Syndrome (a form of self inflicted dementia I believe). Her problem is that she had hated him for many years and has left him and gone back too many times over the years - he has always been a cruel and violent man. However, she is now at the end of her tether and resents having to care for him. He gives her no peace, particularly at night with his constant sexual demands and she gets no restful sleep at all (she us 70, he 66). She had even spoken of suicide recently! I helped her secure one werk's respite care for him to give her a break, but I had to lend her the money for this as she is only in receipt of the basic state pension and a small attendance allowance for him! Can somebody please give her hope for the future and what she can do next. He has a Consultant Psychogeriatrician and CPN but she is having to fight for every shred of help from them and her GP.
