My wife was officially diagnosed with dementia after she exhibited aggressive behavior and delusions in March of 2016. She was hospitalized for 4 days during which time all sorts of tests were performed to rule out stroke or other etiology. At that time, I was told that she may or may not "come out of her delusions" and I should consider outside care. She did seem to return to some sort of normalcy for a time, but it became obvious that the dementia was to be permanent. I hired a number of caregivers to come to help in the home. After a relatively short time, she refused to have them come. Out of frustration and on the advice of two nurses, I placed in a memory care facility. After a few weeks, I realized she was not as advanced as most residents there and brought her back home. The caregivers I have now are excellent. She liked them at the beginning but is now insisting that she doesn't need them, in spite of my telling her that they come to help me as well. I am left with considering returning her to a facility, though I would much prefer to keep her home.
