You need to post your question on the Caregivers Forum, not Musings. Not many caregivers read or post on Musings.
There are a lot of caregivers for parents on that forum.
New member. My husband has dementia due to lack of oxygen to the brain. His ammonia levels due to cirrhosis are elevated so sometimes he hallucinates and it is hard to understand what he is talking about. He remembers things that happened in the past and talks as if the experiences were with me. It was not me, but, quite possibly his ex wife. Some stories appear to be complete fabrications.
His sense of taste is varied from day to day. This makes cooking a nightmare. Nothing I cook tastes right to him and he will say everything tastes the same or is non-descript.
He uses the wrong words all the time like covert for COVID. He calls Joe Biden. Joe Bowden.
He no longer wants me to go to the doctors with him. He says I do not need to be there. He is still driving in spite of a warning from me to the doctor who cautioned him that he could lose his license. He totaled my car, but, the accident was by himself late at night and he drove the car home. His has a delayed response while driving and in responding to questions or conversations.
He is very angry specifically at me. I find it hard to go to church and leave him for any period of time, He insist On working 3 days a week. I have explained the situation to his employer so they are aware. They are comfortable with him continuing to work.
I feel like a prisoner in my own home. He doesn’t want visitors or my friends to come by. It is like we live with a big secret.
