Hi, this is my first post so hope it’s alright! My OH was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 16 months ago and everyday is now a challenge. Sundowning, confusion, anxiety, anger, she’s had it all. Continually wants to go out as cannot relax for more than 10 minutes at a time, these cold dark winter evenings certainly do not help. Daytimes not so much of a problem. My concern now is she has a partial knee replacement operation scheduled for the week before Christmas. Recovery for a fit person is around 2 weeks on crutches then gradual improvement going forward. In light of the continual need to be on the go, and not able to relax, coupled with struggling to use crutches even in practice, has anyone else out there had the same, or similar, problem to deal with, to ensure a full as possible recovery. Any advice on how to deal with the inevitable potential problems would be appreciated. If the operation wasn’t so badly needed I wouldn’t put her through it.
