@jules, we were in retirement when this was diagnosed. Going into 5th year since diagnosed & had to make one of the hardest decisions to admit to nursing facility. He is been there for 13 days and it is quite a transition for both of us. The non-communication is the worst part…..other aspects of the dementia are coming on rather quick….he is 79yrs old, we've been married 58 yrs. My faith and family have been my salvation. One day at a time, but some days are harder than others.

My prayers for both of you.

That is the hard part to think about… I don't know how or when I will be able to have my husband go into memory care. He knows who I am still and I know it will be devastating to him. When he was diagnosed I was led to believe he wouldn't realize what he was losing but he does seem to know and is frustrated. He thinks if he tries harder to talk he will get better. Makes me sad that I can't help him.
He is pretty much totally dependant on me so it will be a huge empty feeling for me to. We were forced into early retirement because of this disease not at all what we had planned!
