My husband is 55 years of age and was diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia 2 1/2 years ago.He was sectioned under the mental health act just before Christmas 2003 because his agression and paranoia became out of control. He is now going into a nursing home and I was hoping there maybe someone who can advise me as to what I should expect to look for. Funding has not been sorted yet and so I am not able to look at any places but it is going to be a major step for my husband and I want to do the best I can for him. He is now very placid on minimal medication but in need of professional care. It has all happened so very quickly. The last 3 months have seen such a rapid deterioration I can't believe it. He has also lost a great deal of weight. I have tremendous support from my husbands family and also my 2 wonderful daughters but do feel very alone at times. They all live away apart from my sister who is great but I feel that if someone has been through this and can give me some advise I would not feel so out of my depth.
