Hi, my Dad has recently undergone some tests for dementia, the doctors believe he may have vascular dementia however we are still waiting for the results. He has good days and bad days with his moods but over the last 2-3 weeks he has not only not recognised my Mum but also thinks she is a man. The community matron who visited my Mum a few weeks back told her not to go along with him and to always insist that she is his wife, work with photo's etc but he doesn't even recognise himself in the pictures. He also calls me quite often early in the morning before my Mum is a awake and I have to talk him through his house and tell him to wake Mum up even though he doesn't know who she is. He also doesn't always recognise his surroundings at home and calls it a premisses. He has started to get angry now when I insist that the person with him is Mum and has started slamming the phone down on me, today being one of those days :( Does anyone have any advise on how to deal with this or on any books I can buy to help. We could be waiting for another 2 weeks for his results the doctors seem to be so slow and the support for my Mum is so limited or non existant. Thank you and sorry if I've waffled on a bit...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
