Welcome to TP Dave. I'm sorry you've had to come here but you have come to the right place for help. When I joined I found that just having a look at current posts I would often come across useful information. Now that you've introduced yourself, if you have some specific questions after the diagnosis why not start your own thread here:Wife just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's consultant says mid.any help would be appreciated
Hi my wife thinks she is ok.just forgetting things now and again.Hi Dave, sorry to hear about your wife. Its a hard thing to deal with.
I am trying to get a diagnosis at present for my dad. I feel some of the things he is having trouble with are consistent with mid stage Alzheimers, though other things he is still good with, like speaking, language etc.
Would you mind giving me an idea of what your wife is having difficulties with and how a diagnosis was obtained?
This is all a learning curve for me. I've never been close with my dad but I am the only person around that can try and help him. He is in complete denial but is starting to realise something isn't quite right, though will not admit it.
