My husband was diagnosed 4 years ago with alzhimers, he's is only 65. He has suffered severe depression most of his adult life. We have been together for 15 years and married for 5. We both worked with dementia patients for many years. I still do, so I have a good insight to the illness, but I struggle to see where my husband is in his illness. I dont see a big deterioration in his memory, maybe because he hardly speaks unless spoken to. He just sits watching meaningless tv all day. He has no interest in doing anything or going anywhere. The last 2 holidays we had have been awful. He cant seem to cope being outside his comfort zone. He has no interest in doing anything. Hes taken to sleeping on the couch day and night. His mood dosen't seem really low so I dont think he is badly depressed. I just wish I could give him some umph. Sorry for the rant.
