My OH and I are both 75, and he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in February this year, though in reality had been having problems for at least a year before then, probably longer. He is in total denial of this, thinks all is well despite the 'odd' behaviour and his inability to converse, organise things etc, of which I am sure you are all familiar. He shadows me constantly and resents it if I go out to meet a friend. He does nothing all day unless I take him out, just sits staring into space, or watching TV. He is always asking me what I want to do, when he really means what are we going to do. He does help a little with household chores, though mostly I have to put things right when he does them, putting wrong bins out, emptying things into the wrong bins, things like that. When we visit friends he says little. I try to suggest things he might like to do but if I am not involved in them he isnt interested. He has occasionally taken himself off to the local shop but even then things go wrong, and I now worry if he is out on his own. When I remind him to take care he just laughs, as he does at most things I ask him to do. My contact with support is difficult as he cant accept he has a problem, and although I have someone coming to see me soon I know he will expect to be there when they talk to me, so thats not going to be much help. I dont want to go to bed at the same time as him as I value the few minutes I have by myself, and anyway I can't sleep for worrying about the future. I feel completely inadequate to cope with what lies ahead, so any tips on this would be really helpful. Sorry to rant on, I am usually a happy person who is able to enjoy life. I should say that my children are concerned, though because they think their father is wonderful I feel I cannot share things with them.
