Hello everyone, my husband has Alzheimer's and is at present in hospital after falling downstairs and breaking his arm. He is delirious at times and his dementia has got worse during the 10 days he's been hospital. He has consistently refused almost all food and drink and has said he wants to die. He had already told me months ago that when he lost his independence and his abilities he wanted me to help him die. We both believe that he should be allowed to make that choice, although of course we know it's not legally allowed. I also think that Alzheimer's should be classified as a terminal illness, as there is no cure; nor is there likely to be one in the next few years. Are there other people on this Forum who feel the same way as myself and my husband?
