My husband with Alzheimers gets FURIOUS if I bring in a carer for an hour to sit with him so that I can go out.
His AD is too advanced for him to understand explanations or to appeal to his sense of sympathy on my behalf.
The last time I left him with a carer, he swore, kicked his shoes off and took his pants off!! (?)
I'm now trying out having the carer there and we all sit together for an hour in order to try and get my husband used to the idea but this costs me a fortune with no actual benefits for me.
My husband is already on anti-depressants but what I need is a magical "Happy Pill" to make him accept the carer.
P.S. He can't do any activities at all and doesn't enjoy TV. He only wants to be near me or our daughter.
