    My husband has alzeimers and is always losing things. He has had it three years but I have just got him to see a specialist doctor. He throws things sometimes when he gets annoyed.
    I have just been to church with him. He hasn't to drive anymore. I sent away his licence this week to the DVLA and I changed the car insurance to my name and the breakdown.

    Catherine,
    Congratulations on doing a very, very difficult thing and stopping your husband from driving. It's a huge issue for many people as losing a driving licence is seen (rightly so) as losing independence. For you to have accomplished this early on is an enormous achievement, as I'm sure it was very hard for you both.

    Hello Catherine abc,

    You mentioned DVLA so it can't be Cleveland Ohio !

    I'm in Cleveland too - in one of the seaside bits.

    Welcome to TP - anything I can do to help /advise - just let me know.

    TP has been an absolute lifeline for me and sister. Sure you will find it the same.


    Good on you re the driving but check you hide the keys or disable the car. A person who is determined to drive sometimes doesn't think about such things as no license or insurance !


    Regards

    Germain
