I have cared for my husband at home for many years when he managed to leave the house during a very hot spell before I had locked us in for the evening. After looking for him through the village I found him with a crowd of people around him. He had fallen down and cut his face badly and we were taken to hospital. He was kept in for 2 weeks then sent to a care home because they said he was too bad for me to look after again, and told me to get some rest and do things I would like to do for a change. Well I have tried to adapt to this, between visits to the care home to see him through a window, but he doesn’t seem to recognise me at all. He had forgotten I was his wife when here but after there being no visiting in the hospital he has completely forgotten everything. It has made me feel so unhappy because I cannot look after him any more or see inside where he is that I feel redundant and tearful when I leave him and most of the time. Does anyone know if this will wear off please?
