i explained calmly to him but he did not really take it in much just said so i havent got to do anything and then walked away he is perfectly fine doing his normal day to day routineas long as nothing throws him of his routine but anything new it seems he doesnt even try to understand itCan you explain the letters to him so he understands them? How long can he hold a piece of information, now?
Sounds like he's reasonably unable to make choices, then. They call that a lack of capacity. You might want to take the legal option POA if you think it'll help you; which it will as the disease progresses.i explained calmly to him but he did not really take it in much just said so i havent got to do anything and then walked away he is perfectly fine doing his normal day to day routineas long as nothing throws him of his routine but anything new it seems he doesnt even try to understand it
hi not yet, did get him to see doctor re his hip which needs replacing but he has refused treatment so he told me I am trying to pluck up courage to go and talk to doctor about him myself but i know he will not go back to see her for a long time not sure why i feel so anxious about seeing doctor think it is in case they do not beleive me that some thingis very wrongHi Tuftydawn. Sorry if I've missed this but has your OH actually been diagnosed yet? Did you manage to get him to see his GP? I'm sorry that things are difficult for you both at the moment.

thank you for all your advise and being there i have to start getting things sorted at moment I JUST WANT THIS TO BE OVER !!!! some days are harder than other for no particular reasonHi Tuffydawn.
It can be difficult if not impossible to get someone to go to the GP when they really need to. You do have my sympathy.
I have not reread your previous posts, so apologies if you have already done this.
It is a good idea to keep a diary on the things/problems you notice and get this to the GP.
Hopefully the GP will be more helpful in getting your Husband to go see him, possibly under the guise of a well man check.
What I really came here to say is, please seriously consider getting
LPA (lasting power of attorney) their are two types
One for Finance and Property
One for Health and Welfare
To be perfectly honest I believe it's best to have both.
You don't need to have a diagnosis of any illness.
The only requirements are , the donor must be willing and able to understand the powers they are granting to their chosen Attorney(s)
If you feel able you can do the forms yourself, other organisations will help with this, such as Age concern, the CAB.
