My husband just turned 63 but his health is not good. He suffered a stroke a year ago and since then has been diagnosed with dementia. We have discovered that the first doctor missed the signs so he has been dealing with this for about 5 years now. Once the stoke happened everything seemed to hit all at once. He entered assisted living in August of 2018. In the past few weeks his body is failing him and he is no longer able to stand. He is moved with a lift from wheelchair to bed and back to bed. He still knows me but struggles to carry on conversations. He usually only answers if you ask a question. He is comfortable and the staff loves him. They take good care of him. When I talk to family and friends, they seem to be in denial of the serious nature. I get comments like "do you let him drink from aluminum cans? have you tried coconut oil? are you making him work out? I know they are well intentioned but I get frustrated and do not know how to respond.
