Tomorrow will be 4 years since diagnosis. It has just been my husband and I. Lately I have become increasingly anxious thinking about what will happen to him should I become ill. There is no family who could step in. Our Alzheimer's support worker offered to arrange a meeting with social services to put in place a contingency plan. We arranged for me to have POA health and finance, and our wills were updated at the time of diagnosis. However, the big elephant in the room is what next? Those of you, where it is you and your spouse/ partner, what arrangements have you made should you no longer be in good health? What are your experiences with contingency planning involving social services? The prospect of them becoming involved with his life terrifies my husband, not least because he was a social worker.
