I am a full time carer for my husband he was diagnosed with Alzheimers in July 2014 after lots of tests. His main symptons are speech and memory he has problems talking people. Most days i take him out either shopping or to the bingo this seems to keep his mind active and he enjoys it. If we stay at home he sleeps all the time in his chair and gets very bored. He takes Donzepezil 10mg at night has done this since he was diagnosed i find them good. They seem to stop things getting worse. The worst problem he has is bowel problems after he has eaten we have to keep finding toilets. I blame this on Metformin for his diabetis.
