Last December my husband was diagnosed with beginning stages dementia. After all testing was complete the dr recommended no driving since one area affected is his spatial judgment/relations. Although upset, he did what he was asked. He is currently on the patch and NamendaXR. He wasn't much of a doer before, but he did get out and enjoy life. He would golf, go for a bike ride, enjoy traveling or going out for dinner, etc. Now, he has become a complete couch potato. There is no motivation, ambition whatsoever. Everything and anything I suggest, I get a "no." Plans are made, then he cancels or changes his mind. There is a 6 year age difference between us, he will be 67 in 2 weeks, I am 61. Although we are just at the beginning stages of this disease, my life has changed drastically. I know there is a long road ahead, but his disinterest in anything and everything, except TV is starrting too soon. We have a drs appt for his yearly evaluation in 3 weeks. I am mentioning all this to the drs., looks like depression to me. Thoughts please for I really do not know what to do by his apathy. Thank you.
