Morning, I am new to this forum. My husband was diagnosed 2 years ago with Early Onset, after a couple years of progressive testing. He is still high functioning, although he does not drive. I work 4 10 hour shifts and have Thursdays and the weekends off with him. He recently started an adult daycare program in the mornings, 2x a week, on the advice of his social worker through his doctor's office...as an attempt to socialize more. I drop him off and then pick him up on my lunch break to go home. Most of the patients at this daycare are further along in their disease. He told me (after 5 visits) that he is not interested in attending right now and he knows that the daycare is a sign of things to come. The center wants him to keep going in more of a "volunteer" role. He is not interested and said he may look at it again in the fall. I feel like I'm betraying him by talking to the Center's director about this but he wants to be home in the summer to work on his garden and other small projects.Should I let him stay home or keep trying to convince him to go? Thoughts on this?View Thread
