DH is 70. Both his mother and her mother had dementia. I don't know if that's relevant. He's also losing his hearing, despite having hearing aids, and has quite bad arthritis.
Physically, he has now had to give up work, as he just couldn't do it any more. That was the end of last year. Since then, there have been a number of worrying incidents:
He couldn't work out how to get out of the car. I had to show him where the door handle was. We have had the car for four years.
He put the clocks on for me last night, but only by half an hour. That was confusing!
His driving has become very erratic, often drifting across lanes on the motorway. Frightening for me as a passenger but he won't let me drive.
I will tell him where I am going and when I am leaving/returning and afterwards he will ask me the same questions repeatedly.
I said I was going to arrange to go and see my oldest friend, but he didn't seem to know who she was.
There is no hope of getting him to a doctor. Does this sound like mild cognitive impairment, or does it sound more like something that is going to develop into a real problem?
Throughout our marriage it has been one thing after another and I had hoped that once we both stopped working (I'm due to stop in November) we would have a happy retirement, but now I'm afraid that this won't happen.
Does anyone have any advice , or experiences to share?
Anyone else fed up with North Easterly wind flow?
