MIL has pretty involved aphasia. She recognizes everyone but can rarely get a name right. Cannot handle or count money at all. Still knows when she wants to do laundry and clean, but cannot operate any appliance.
Cannot read much and writing is nearly impossible.
There are also balance issues and quite a large weight loss over the last 2 to 3 years. We have been told it's "dementia." No type has been identified. She is now living with us due to FIL's inability to accept her new limitations. Any thoughts as to what type of dementia this is? Is this Alzheimer's disease?
Thanks for any input.
