My wife has been diagnozed with dementia in the very early stages. She's just having trouble with names of people, pets, and things like tools, etc. She has lost an amount of money a couple of times, just can't find it. But, she still does the family bookkeeping including a bi-weekly payroll, so she's not impaired at all hardly but it is noticable to everyone who has known her for awhile. Since Alzheimers is the most common form and her father suffered with it I fear that it will evntually develop that way.
We have seen a nuerologist twice, last time he diagnosed the problem as dementia, which simpy means "problems with memory" then he said come back to see me in four months. It doensn't appear that he intends any early treatment so I wonder why not is there nothing that can be done in the early stage?
I have had great success, actually truly amazing success, in finding treatment for my own medical difficulty by seeking advice from other sufferers who share their experience in these forums. So, how about it, are there any treatments that have worked for your patients or loved ones? Any advice at all is welcome as I am just beginning the quest for the latest and best early treatments.
