My husband was diagnosed in March with dementia and our lives have just spiraled. i am still learning about this disease so any help would be appreciated. He has gone through the accusation stage and is now currently this week getting a neighbor woman involved that i don't know-but she picks him up while I'm at work and takes him places. He carries no money so not sure what she expects from him. As of last night he wants to give her a list of his meds to see what he can quit taking-to my knowledge she was a user at one time, he wants her to look over our bills to see where i am blowing his disablitiy money. Says she is going to be his saving grace to keep him out of a nursing home, there has been no talk about putting him in a nursing home. This all came about last night when I got home and he was missing. The woman won't answer her phone or talk to me so not sure how to handle.
I told him that this may be an answer for us since he isn't able to stay home alone and that calmed him down but I don't want this woman involved in our lives. I really believe that after a couple of days of his demanding ways that she will get tired of it and quit coming around.
Any advice how to handle this would be greatly appreciated.
