My husband was diagnosed with early stage Alz during May 2013. In December 13 he was given a medication review as he had been taking Donepezil at 10 mgs pd for 3 months. During this meeting we were asked if we needed any support. I suggested that it would be helpful if the hospital could let us know, when arranging appointments, what they were for as OHs anxiety is raised with change, particularly if he feels he has little or no control over the outcome or purpose. At the end of the consultation we were advised that the next appointment would be in approximately a year at the memory clinic. A year passed and no appointment was offered, so we contacted the memory clinic to be told that he had been discharged after the last consultation in December. I am curious if this is common and if so why? I have looked again at the consultants letter to the GP (which we had to ask if there had been any correspondence) and it does advise that a routine follow up will not be offered. What are other peoples experiences please? By the way, this message may come across as calm, but believe me there is a furnace raging!!!
