    Hello, I am currently caring for a patient who lives with her husband. Trying to help them but now he says he can no longer trust her and she keeps mentioning his dead mother and has called 911 on a fake accusation on him. He can’t shake mean things she says to him either.


      Thank you for the care you provide. You’re describing an incredibly difficult situations, one which will have no easy answers. Married couples understandably want to stay together, so too often resist change until situations become unhealthy for both of them. A 911 call could easily lead to authorities separating the couple, so it would be better to make changes before that happens. This will likely require the husband to better that dementia is affecting his wife’s behavior, and he will likely have to make hard decisions about how to better care for both himself and his wife. The book “Contented Dementia” by Oliver James addresses similar situations.
