I have just returned from a week on a boat on the Norfolk Broads in the company of my wife, who has advanced Alzheimers, two physically disabled relatives who were helping with my wife and two dogs. The weather was kind, the boat was good and my relatives were excellent in calming the wife down when she was convinced that she was being kidnapped and totally confused with her surroundings. We did have a couple of incidents in a pub and a cafe where we were waiting to be served. She was confused with the noise and movement of people and became inconsolable. Strange thing about other people looking after Jean, whilst I was out on long rambles, they do tend to tell you everything she has done and seem to seek approval or answers from me as to whether they have followed the right course of action. I am not ungrateful and am genuinely thankful for the few moments of releive that I got. I suppose it is my reaction from having spent so much time questioning my own actions without any one else being immediately available for consultation.
