My OH has got Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer’s. His long term memory is bad aswell now. He can’t remember friends or relatives only those he sees regularly. He has an adopted son and daughter from his first marriage who rarely visit, they have both sent Father’s Day cards but it’s upset him because he can’t remember who they are! He knows our daughter but she visits often with our grandson. He has been aggressive and violent and is taking antipsychotic drugs to calm him down. But he does still get the temper tantrums but is not violent since taking the drugs. But after the tantrums end the memory is always worse. He will be going in respite for the first time soon as I need an operation on my eye and will need time to recover not sure how he will cope with it. I can only hope he likes it as i would love this to be a regular thing to give me a break.
