My husband has had Alzheimers for around twelve years now so a very slow decline. We’ve managed quite well up to now, he’s been easy going and I know I’ve been very fortunate. But over the last two weeks I've had trouble getting him to bed and it’s really causing me stress, I start dreading the evening and the hassle I know is coming. I’ve tried everything in my. “persuasion “ repertoire, but he just sits on the sofa with closed eyes and says “ no”. The other evening I didn’t get him to bed until two in the morning.! I’m sitting here having tried for the last 40 minutes without success. He forgets things almost immediately so I’ll wait ten minutes (for me to simmer down) then have another go ......but I find it so hard to be relentlessly cheerful when inside my head I’m yelling and shouting at him. Any suggestions please?
