Dementia is often accompanied by depression, anxiety and agitation. Meds can help these symptoms. Caregiving is hard enough without being verbally abused.
But back to your husband. I agree that he should be assessed by a therapist. But, since he is in the early stages, I'd also recommend some fun, 'normal activities --- while he can still enjoy and participate.Maybe he feels he will never do 'normal' things again. The events may be different but with dementia, the best abilities are today, not next year.
