It's 10:15 pm husband has been outside in the dark three times on the past hour looking for me ( I am in the house) I can not get him redirected as he just does not recognize me physically much anymore. He is very adamant about going out and screams at me if I try to stop him

Bless his heart and yours also. It must feel terrible to see him looking for you and not being able to find you:(

Oh My, so difficult for both of you! Since the re-directing isn't working, how do you feel about 'white lies'? If he doesn't recognize you as his wife, can you say that 'she' had to run an errand and will be back after he goes to bed/sleep? At one point when I greeted my Mom by saying hi, it's me , and gave my name, --- my Mom said, oh I have a daughter with that name! I complimented her by saying what a pretty name you picked out and moved on to another topic! If your area is safe, you may even take him for a ride or walk. If you understand what 'era' he is living in, you may reference that For example, My mom once was annoyed that my dad wasn't 'there'. (He had died 20 +years earlier.) I mentioned an organization he had been active with and said there was a big committee meeting he had to go to. She accepted it and moved on. It's a guessing game, all I can say is that tomorrow it will be forgotten, so I will say a prayer for you tonight!
