@chesneydell1965 ..Heartfelt sadness in what you are experiencing. I no longer care for my husband@home..He is in a Nursing home…his frontolobal dementia seems to manifest itself with him being totally indifferent to me when I visit. It hurts. I get it. It is the disease. I'm grieving the loss of our relationship as partners for 59 yrs, my love my all…every day is a challenge in this journey of Alzheimer's. Praying for you. Glad you came aboard.

Debra since Jan this year. He is settling in well. Initially was constantly trying to leave and acting out when I left. Seems to be adjusting but does not interact with me. I kiss and hug him but he is platonic which is part of his frontolobal dementia….? Not sure of the spelling….indifference is part of that diagnosis. The worst is his inability to communicate. Cannot find his words. My heart is sad….although he does know who we are. Lights up when our kids and grandkids visit.

@debbraw Yes. DO have great support group. Once a month. Counselling therapy has been great. I am experiencing anxiety and depression. PRAYER and my church are another support. I'll pray for all of you.

@debraw706 I also attended in Mi. Very informative. Best part was that everyone shared their experiences. And the stages explained a lot. My husband is in a facility…hardest thing ever done. Still have doubts he should be there. Our daughters were worried about my health having him home. Alzheimer and Aphasia are his diag. I'm all alone. Going through counseling…seems helpful. Highly recommend the workshop.

Thank you for sharing. What involved his initial fall? Did he trip? Dizziness? Was it 1st time? I really hope he agres soon to go to the doctor. Perhaps other family members could help talk with him and encourage him before he further compromises his health. Good luck.

Oh no. You need to reach out. To someone. Hospice for one. They helped me when my husband started falling. Asking for help is the 1st good step to taking care…of you. I would love to hear your story. I am sure we all can listen and share our experiences and help to get through this journey. We are here for you.

Hello all. Just reread past posts. Thank you all. Husb doing a bit better..settling in I credit the Ativan he is taking and they actually give to him earlier in afternoon for what I think is Sundown syndrom. It was my suggestion. It helps with the anxiety that overcomes him like clockwork late afternoon.I hope you all have been coming well through your journeys. It's still a struggle. Talk therapy and Skill class helping as well but these 2 wkly appts. add to my long "to do lists". Having spiraling down episodes so I am told to continue…
