My husband has had dementia for about 6 years now. He is still all right on his own for the morning and I belong to various groups such as WI and sewing groups. Yesterday I had a lovely morning shopping with a friend followed by lunch. I normally leave something easy for my husband to eat if I'm going to be out that long but he never eats it. I feel as though .Maybe I shouldn't go out but stay here with him. My daughter thinks I should continue to go out and my GP said I should keep up with my own things. However I spoke to someone at the local Carer's centre who made me feel awful for wanting to go out to lunch and so on. I think I will have to be stop going out at some point unless I can find some care. What do other Carers think?
