My husband has had frontal temporal lobe dementia for over 10 years and unfortunately I had to put him into a care home 2 years ago. He is unable to communicate but when I visit him (usually 3 times a week) he grips my hand and wrist so tightly that I have now had to buy wrist supports. Occasionally he pulls me around and pushes me towards the window or wall. He has one to one care when I am not there and the staff admit he is very strong. His eyesight is weak and I do wonder that when he hears my voice he grabs and won't let go as a form of security. He is getting exceptional care at the home but I cannot bear to think of him feeling anxious and agitated. I would like to hear if anyone else has experienced this kind of behaviour with loved ones with dementia.
