My wife has been recently diagnosed with Dementia, but I noticed changes 3 years ago. The diagnosis say's she also has other mental health problems. Her mood changes are sudden and sometimes dramatic. It took over 7 months to get the diagnosis from the first time she agreed to see her doctor. She accepts what is wrong with her and will talk about it when she is having a reasonable day. She has an excellent mental health nurse who comes to see her every week. She now seems to be getting some help. I am trying to cope on my own, but some days it's a struggle. I have not left her side for over 7 months and so far get no relief. I keep getting promises from Mental Social Care, and Carer's and Altziemers societies but I am still waiting for them to carry out assessment's, although there are now finally booked appointments.
