Hi everybody, My name is Dov and Talking Point is so new to me that I'm a little apprehensive. But here goes. My father-in-law, aged 95, lives alone and physically is in good shape. Several months ago he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and he has gradually deteriorated mentally since then. His irrationality centres mainly on 'intruders' getting into his flat and stealing items of clothing or food. When I ask how the intruders can get into his locked and bolted flat, he simply shrugs and says he doesn't know . . . but they DO. At least he is not frightened by the 'intruders.' They are more of a nuisance. It has now got to the point that I am so stressed, that I can neither relax nor 'enter into his world occasionally' as I have been advised by his mental health visiting nurse. I just want to scream whenever I approach his home and whenever the phone rings at MY home with reports of the latest 'theft.' Today, I saw my GP who upped my medication (I suffer from periods of depression) and also advised me to try Talking Point. I am a 68-years-old bloke who feels terribly guilty that I 'hate' my wife's father because his condition has impacted on mine. But it is not his fault -- and that's what kills me. Any advice would be sincerely welcomed.
