The OT came today, referred to by my husband`s psychiatrist. She is the first home visitor my husband had agreed to welcome, since the disastrous visit by a CPN last year. She arrived at 1pm. as arranged, chatted to my husband while I made a cup of tea, then chatted to both of us. At the first mention of Support Groups and Memory Clinics, he turned to me, said he didn`t need any clinics, there was nothing wrong with him, I was looking for attention and being dramatic, then he got up and walked out. He has just returned. He has been out for over 2 hours. While he was out we talked about him, how he is and what he does. The OT believes he is still in the early stages. She believes this is the hardest stage for him, as he knows what`s happening and is still trying to fight it. But she does not believe it is the hardest stage for me.
