My husband is diagnosed with PD and has recently been diagnosed with mild to moderate cognitive decline.
He is on a new medication which is a patch to help slow down the progression.
He believes the patch is for his vivid dreams from his other medications, while this is partly true, at his visit to neurologist last week, she said this will help him with the cognitive issues, my husband refuses to accept he has issues. I had him call the doctor to let him talk to her again as he for whatever reason felt I was wrong. He has gotten more argumentative with me over small things. He called the doctor 3 different times. He doesn't remember making the call. I showed him the number on his cell phone, but his realization and responses are ones that indicate he is in denial or he really doesn't remember.
I just don't want to frustrate him as I know that it can make his symptoms worse.
Anyone ever gone through this or has suggestions?
