My dad was diagnosed with dementia, probably Alzheimer's. He doesn't wander, and is still capable of going to the bank, walking to a restaurant to eat dinner. However, he at times doesn't remember who I am! He lives alone, but has been at the same place for 30 years, with supportive neighbors.
His current primary doctor doesn't want to treat the dementia. For me, I think that the drugs might be worth a shot. Does anyone have experience with this?
