Does anyone else familiar with this ? My husband was diagnosed at age 51 and is now 62.

@colleenyoung Thanks for reaching out. I'm sad to say my husband, Al passed away on Jan 3rd. He had covid dehydrated, malnourished sent to hospital and then to hospice. Got thru the covid but within 2 wks the aphasia/Alzheimer's took over. He hadn't spoken for almost 18 months. No idea how he was when we could only visit through window at nursing home. Seemed to enjoy our visits but didn't participate. All happened so fast. I wish your husband comfort on his journey. And peace for you..

I’m so sorry for your loss. May I ask how long he had this disease? We don’t go into Mayo for doctor visits anymore. The facility provides that in house when needed. My prayers are with you.
@dianajane, thank you for returning to share about your husband's passing. COVID has complicated both life and death. I'm so sorry to hear that you couldn't be at his side. That must've been hard. Please know that there is a Loss & Grief support group here if you wish: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/loss-grief/
@julesa, COVID has complicated everything! It must be a big help however that you are now able to focus on being an essential caregiver and have a camera in his room to monitor.
