Hi I’m Bridget caring for my 83 year old husband who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 3 years ago.. I’m ten years and have lost interest in any sexual relationship but my husband although impotent is still very needy and constantly wants attention in that department. I find it very very difficult emotionally to respond and he gets upset and angry. Am I being selfish. I care for all his needs and love him but not sexually any more.Hi everyone, and welcome to our wellbeing discussion!
Whether you have dementia, or you care for a loved one with dementia, wellbeing and mental health are just as important as physical health.
We wanted to check in with all our members and ask the all-important question, how are you?
This discussion is a chance for you share how you feel, ask and answer questions about wellbeing, and share practical advice with other community members. This way you can share your emotions and advice with others who understand and have lived experience to share.
