my husband has dementia, he’s no longer able to hold a conversation with me. I’m only 57, I work and up to now have coped on my own. M (my husband) gets nasty around the grandchildren, we had a party and he got angry and started grabbing the children. The next day he got nasty with my eldest grandson that I was looking after whilst his mum was out, he ended up shoving me so we had to walk the streets until out daughter came home. I phoned the dementia team and they’ve said we shouldn’t see the children as it a trigger until they find out from the consultant how his meds can be changed. I was told this on Monday, it’s now Thursday night and I’ve still not heard anything! My grandchildren are my life and without my children visiting I’m completely isolated. I’m feeling very depressed and tearful. I don’t know how much longer I can cope with this. I’m finding it hard to put one foot in front of the other, apart from my very close family which I can’t see I feel no one cares. I have friends that don’t bother with me now, I’m so unhappy!
