I took mom to the doctor today. We discussed many of her issues including her instability walking (she uses a cane and a walker), her sleeping more (she went from 11 hours to 14 hours), and her occasional delusions. They received back the bone density scan and apparently her hips are very porous. He said that she could suffer a spontaneous fracture just walking. Yet one more thing to worry about. The doctor put her on the generic Fosamax and I bought her vitamin-D and calcium supplements.
There are so many things that she neglected earlier in life that they seem to all be catching up to her now.
Mom is middle stage verging on late stage dementia, she flips back and forth between childhood memories and memories of when I was a child. She sometimes forgets that she ever lived in NM. She is taking Donezepil and the doctor suggested Namenda. Is anyone’s loved one taking Namenda and did you see any benefit from it. Since my mom has been on the Donezepil her delusions aren’t as frequent but her memory loss seems to be progressing more rapidly than I would have expected with this disease, catch-22.
Curious about the responses on the Namenda. Did you find that it helped?
