I have been reading posts for a few days and have found it very reassuring that other people have similar feelings and problems as I do. I'll give a bit of background. My Husband is 75 (16 years older than me) and has been suffering memory loss and confusion for a few years but has become much worse in last 9 months. He has been referred to a memory clinic and we are waiting for an appointment for a brain scan so diagnosis is not confirmed, but specialist thinks he may have Vascular or mixed dementia. I have recently given up work (retirement!), and we were to have more time to enjoy life, but his memory problems have stopped that and I am fast becoming his carer. I have found it very useful to read about how other people cope and now find it much easier to cope with the endless repeating of questions and false memories. I have a wonderful daughter who is so supportive, and a beautiful baby Granddaughter who is wonderful therapy (lots of hugs). I am so glad I found TP, and look forward to sharing with other carers.
