My husband has had alzheimers for 6 years now. He has been on aricept or a generic pill for 4 of those. they have slowed down the process. He is currently having hallucinations which is very difficult as he doesn't believe they are not real. He had a bunch of knives and sticks in his bedroom but thankfully that has passed now. He does put my walking stick against the front door of the apartment. Which is better than the chair he did use for a while. We got out for coffee and a bagel every morning and he is very happy with that. If it's nice we will go a walk in the afternoon. Sometimes he goes on his own. It was hard for me at first because he was the one who did all the cooking now I have to do everything. I don't keep great myself as I have a lot of back problems. I use a mobility scooter which lets me go out as often as a like.It's difficult getting in and out of the car because he never remembers it from one day to the next, so I have to explain to him what has to be done. He sleeps a lot. Doesn't do any activities now. He used to do the crossword all the time but can't cope with those anymore. I have a lot of support from my two daughters who both live in in the same city. I live in London Ontario.
