Hi everyone
My name is Sharon, I’m 65 and married to John who is 75 & recently diagnosed with Alzheimers.
I retired a couple of years ago & like many others, thought I would be enjoying retirement with my hubby but sadly, the reality is a little different.

I am taking comfort in a lot of the posts I am reading but it’s also heartbreaking to hear about people who are in despair.

I do have a couple of questions which I will ask in another thread, for now, I just wanted to say hello.

Welcome @SharoH

When you are ready to ask your questions you'll get the best support in the section I have a partner with dementia which is here;

This way all the support you receive will be in one place.

My husband was 10 years older than me too and we had exciting plans for retirement as well. It`s tough when fate decides otherwise.
