My Dad (82) was diagnosed with alzheimers over a year ago. Although my Dad is aware that he's not "as he used to be" my Mum took the view that it would be best to keep from him that he has alzheimers. She's looked after my Dad concerntrating on keeping him occupied and active following any advice she gets. He is now however becoming increasingly aware of things "not being right" and my Mum is now wondering if the time is approaching where he should be told what's wrong. I understand that this is a no win situation and that there is no definate answer as to what should be done. If anybody has had the dilemma of whether or not a relative with alzheimers should be told, it would be helpful to hear about your experiences. This would really help us to prepare, what ever decision is made.
