My husband has been diagnosed with dementia. I do have a caregiver who is here 4 hrs a day Mon-Fri. My husband is pretty much house bound except for doctor appointments. He has episodes of incontinence so he doesn't really like to leave the house. But I feel bad when I leave the house without him, even though he has a wonderful care-giver. But I need to be able to have a conversation with people who make sense when you talk to them.
