Welcome to DTP @Long journey ahead

I'm so sorry to he of your husband's condition. I don't have any experience of this myself but I wondered if the Society's Factsheet would be of any help to you -


I'm glad you have found the forum - you'll get lots of help and support here. Keep posting.

Thank you Izzy. This is really helpful. He is in complete denial. I believe unless he abstien completely from alcohol he will get worse. It's a nightmare waiting for memory clinic to contact him .

hello @Long journey ahead
welcome from me too
such a tough situation for you
I hope this isn't too simplistic a suggestion
is there any way you could water down what he drinks or swap for low alcohol alternatives but put in the bottles he recognises ... it might at least begin to lower the alcohol intake
though I appreciate this may not be possible, may be detectable or may have a negative effect, so not worth doing
maybe the consultant will be able to get through to him
