My husband although healthy, in that Alzheimer's is his only medical problem. He can walk without assistance, he has no long or short term memory, he can't do anything for himself. He eats well, food is minced, they have trouble getting him to drink enough. He has a few words, but mostly garbled when he does speak, which is getting less and less. He stands all the time and they have trouble getting him to sit. He just came through a bout of pneumonia and has recovered. He knows I am the one who visits, but not my name or that I am his wife. He is getting wonderful care in a Long Term Care Facility. It just seems a forever journey he is 74.
