My husband has alzheimers. He is stille working ...but....he is absolutely drained when he gets home. Eats with closed eyes (he is tired)....sleeps for more than an hour every afternoon....gets up and is fine again. He says he is afraid the brain will stop working if he stop his work. Me and the kids feel that he is forcing the brain to think and it is not good for the brain to be forced like that. Your comments please!!!!

I agree with Maggie. His employer (I'm assuming his employer is aware of his diagnosis) will let him know when it's no longer possible for him to work. It's learning new stuff that's hard. If he's doing familiar tasks, he should be okay for a bit. If HE wants to stop working, that's another story.

It's good to force the brain like that. ;)

Let him do exactly as he wishes. It is his coping mechanism. Support him and let him be all he can be for as long as he can.

God bless.
