Dear Doctor I am an 80 year old man. My wife is in good health except she has Alzheimers. She is in assisted living. I don't like the idea of asking this question, but I need some advise from someone that might understand. It would appear that my wife has found new "friends" at her new residence. I am told that this is not uncommon, but I am having a serious problem trying to figure out what if anything I should, or can do. Up until six or eight months ago she was never overly sensuous, but now she is very direct in saying what she is thinking. When she knows who I am she avoids my questions concerning her "friends." When she doesn't recognize me she tells me her "friends" are far more affectionate, understanding, and capable than her husband ever was. I am about 80% none functional, and she tells me that in both words and actions.

When your wife has Alzheimers, you cannot always believe what she says, althought I understand that you are hurt.
