My husband has early stage dementia and diabetes-a tough combination. Any suggestions?
Dear all, He has been an athlete all his life, never overweight, etc. and has trouble believing he has diabetes, to which he has just lost a toe. I am still working full-time. He is having trouble remembering to test his blood sugar and take his insulin. I have recently hired a part-time helper but if neither of us is here, he often neglects to check. I have tried all sorts of reminders, ie posting notes, setting cell phone alerts, etc. Have any of you out there had similar experiences? I welcome all your suggestions and thoughts.
