"Creating a memory book for my husband who has Alzheimers Disease"

About: Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust / Older people's mental health

(as a carer),

As my husbands carer, I found this small informal group very friendly and reassuring. It was very interesting to meet and talk to everyone there. We are creating a memory book for my husband who has Alzheimers Disease.

My husband is finding it increasingly difficult to communicate as he is getting ever more confused, but he did open up at times and obviously felt secure in this environment with people whom I think he recognised.
