Robert was diagnosed with "Lewy Body Dementia" about 2 years ago. IMHO, i don't think he has the Lewy version, cuz he's reasonably functional, and he's not hallucinating. i have to help him get dressed (diapers. jeans, belt, t-shirt, and hoodie). he wears the same uniform everyday...even sleeps in it. he waxes and wanes. i never know what version of robert to expect every morning. i'm understanding him more. he tends to fight a lot with scotty in the evening...sundowners syndrome. he's been able to walk up to supercuts and get a shave all by himself (he can no longer shave) . i give him the money and separate the tip money. we both know when he's having a good day, when he can go places w/o getting lost. my parents' house is the perfect place for us to live. i always thought we'd move back to grass valley, but plans have changed. we're within walking distance of just about everything here. back in g.v., we're pretty isolated (just what i like about it), but robert can't drive, and walking to places are to far for him. so, we take a day at a time. it's the best way to do it. i'm not ready for him to leave me yet.
