My wife forgetting: Diagnosed with MCI

After several years mci. Now vascular dementia… I shop, all meals, heavy cleaning. Wife cleans up, does dishwasher, laundry. (Mild scavenger hunt follows) I answer all repeated questions trying not to show my real feelings, joke sometimes about memory issues and keep outward positive attitude. Just as victorkach says, continuing to treat her with love and respect gets us through each day.

Marvkw, I believe keeping everything light and joking helps minimize the anxiety for my wife (even though inside I'm wound pretty tight)
