From His wife
27/04/2021

My husband was diagnosed with vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s in 2014. I have been his carer 24/7 for the last seven years, watching him gradually deteriorate until he now has no short or medium term memory, no logic or reasoning. He needs prompting, supervising and assisting to get washed and dressed and has no interest in anything. He is unpredictable and can react differently to a situation at any time, being verbally abusive and physically threatening. I worry about him if I am taken ill.
