Hello Kate
I must admit, when I was told officially that my lovely husband had vascular dementia, I felt a sense of...can't say relief, but at least my suspicions were correct, so could start to adjust. Not knowing was worse for me. Taught myself to make the best of good times,and remind myself when he was difficult, that it wasn't his fault. Not always easy.

That was exactly how I felt after seeing the GP and he diagnosed dementia. A strange relief that I want imagining it all. Unfortunately, although he asked if we had any questions, I couldn’t think of a single one.

hello Kate. Just sending you some love. My Mum was diagnosed with Alzheimers in Autumn 2016 and is now very frail but she is a lot older than your husband.

Well we had a telephone dementia test on Monday. I was told he scored 10/39 so not good I presume. The Memory Clinic guy will now pass on the info to the consultant for a formal diagnosis which we will hear by phone next week. He spoke about Alzheimer’s and Vascular dementia.
My poor hubby was very down afterwards but within an hour he had forgotten all about it and back to his happy self.
So now we know and carry on.

Am sad to read that Kate. At least you know now. Guessing and worrying is worse in my opinion. Try to rest if you can tonight. Tomorrow is another day.
