Hello all
My OH is still waiting to see the memory specialist ,but even now he does not always if ever know me ,he seems to think I am someone to help him.he asked my name so at least I have the same name,he also at times forgets the names of his children or even that he has them.
But the thing that is the most upsetting thing is that he always wants to be somewhere else and says he doesn’t live where we do live .
He is always saying he wants to go back to ‘the other place “ but doesn’t know where it is.as he is quite frail he does not go out and as last time I left him he was found hobbling down the road neither do I
I think he is probably bored but he has no interest in doing anything.
When the Doctor did his memory test and we spoke afterwards he said that my Oh is not unhappy but he seems to be
Sorry I am probably rambling but so much to adapt to
