My husband, who was diagnosed with front-temporal dementia about 3 1/2 years ago is retired and I left a full-time job to become his caregiver. He can no longer be left alone and my question is what people may be able to suggest with regard to my being away for things such as funerals. I attended a funeral overnight this past weekend, and it was like pulling teeth to find someone to check on him while I was gone. I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions. Things like this are going to come up, often unexpectedly, and even if it's something he can/should go to, he normally refuses.
