He still golfs, but no longer drives a car since he got lost last year. My concern is his excessive sleeping. He goes to bed around 10pm, and never wakes before Noon. He may arise and read the paper, eats very little, and then naps until 5 or 6 pm., unless I interfere. I work, so have to call & yell over the answering machine to make sure he gets up for his golf. His hearing is getting worse, so that is not always successful either. Leaving notes suggesting he walk, excercise, do small chores, etc. don’t work either...he forgets to read them even if I post them in obvious places. There are days he seems a little more confused, but overall his memory loss has been progressing slowly. He recently began eating leftovers stored in the fridge with his hands instead of using a utensil or putting some on a plate. I have not had a Doctor say “Alzheimer’s” to me, but he has been on the usual cognitive medications for a while now. Are these typical symptoms? Is his sleep a depression indicator? How can I motivate him without nagging? I feel like a widow already.
