It sounds as if your husband’s MCI is being well managed by you, your husband and a team of professionals. My husband was diagnosed with the same after an unprovoked, unexpected violent domestic dispute two years ago including MRI, memory clinic, complete physical, geriatric psychiatrist etc. However, he is in complete denial and thinks I have a problem. Because of the pandemic lockdowns in our area I have had to spend much time with him and provide copious stimulation. His situation has improved as a result and I am trying to manage my stress level, not
always successfully. He also has a hearing problem and refuses to wear his hearing aids. This has exacerbated the situation. When we are fully vaccinated, we (I) will be able to travel, at least to visit our children who are helpful now from a distance, of course. Any suggestions? Our local Alzheimer group is helpful to me with tips.
Many thanks.
