My husband is in AL Memory Care for 5 months. I visit him every day. They say he is adjusting and is doing well. Today's visit got me wondering... he always says "where were you, I haven't seen you for weeks"..although I was just there yesterday. He doesn't go on after a while during the visit. By the time I need to leave (usually stay 2-3 hours), he makes the exit very difficult for me. I say I will be back soon, he asks what time, etc. he said today when I arrived "I might as well die, I can't even have my wife here with me". I doubt this is manipulation, he is not like that. Visits themselves can be delightful enough but the beginning and the end leave me feeling confused how to better handle it. Do you suppose he really feels that way? Needed to vent and get your thoughts. Thank you very much.
