He was diagnosed in June. He is on 5 mg of Aricept and seems status quo...but...when we go somewhere out of the ordinary, he seems much more confused etc. why is this? We came home from 5 days up north and he is much better since returning home and his dogs. Will it hurt him if we take an occasional trip to see our kids for holidays, etc? Guess I wonder if it will damage his "status quo" if that makes sense. Thank you.
