My husband of 42 years is showing many signs of dementia and it runs in his mother's family. Forgetfulness, mood swings, anger, alienation from friends and family, constantly repeating the same questions. Frustration when he forgets or cannot find something. Sundowning, wanting to avoid unfamiliar places, puts on pjs in early pm and wants house cklosed up. Wanting me to make all his decisions. Changes in eating behavior. Sleeping more. When listed like this, most items seem insignificant, but put together , they show a dramatic change from his normal behavior in the oast. He has always been a very nice, kind gentle person. That has changed. I would like to believe this is something else but know in my mind and heart what is happening. I would like to discuss with Dr and find out what can be done to help him( and myself). Thanks for any input and happy hols to all!
