Hi everyone. My OH has memory problems, confusion an inability to do even the simplest thing ie put a screw in the wall (when he used to do all home repairs including plumbing etc) and a somewhat relaxed attitude, to say the least, to personal hygiene. What he can do is take our little dog out 3 times a day for his walk so all is not yet lost. He has been like this for going on 5 years now and apart from the fact I do not feel that I could leave him at home alone for more than a couple of hours or so it does not impact life too much. My question strange at it may seem is should I try and get him to go to the doctor to be diagnosed ( that would be an almighty battle as he does not like going, In fact has been maybe half a dozen times in the 49 years we have been married) From my reading it seems that there is nothing which will cure whatever is wrong & any drug side effects may be more problematical than leaving things as they are for the moment at least. SO was just wondering is there any benefit at all to stirring up something of a hornets nest, at least until things get so bad that I have no option?
