I'm really praying for some good advice here. I have had concerns for some time with regard to my husbands memory. He has recently had scans and two psy assessments and we have now been told he has they feel mixed dementia, this is because the scan showed some mild ischemic changes. As its mixed, they are offering to medicate him with donepezil, as they are saying this is in the early stages - I'm not so surem but he did score well on many of the assessments. My husband is 71 and I'm so frightened, I just think he's going to die, this awful death and there's not much I can do. I'm always guarded about medication because of side effects, though the memory clinic clearly think he should try it. He is also a tablet controlled (badly) diabetic. His sister has been on donepezil for two years and she still seems to have declined. I just don't know what to think. I'm looking hard at his diet. Am I going to lose my husband soon?
