Good morning, My FIL is 89 and for the last several years we’ve suspected some form of dementia. In the last year it has become painfully apparent, coupled with a 2 hospitalizations and 2 rehab stints. He and Mom are now in Assisted Living. A memory care therapist comes in twice a week to see Dad. She has assessed that he is in the Middles Stages and gave us a booklet from the Alz. Association. Dad actually seems to fit in several of the categories, including Late Stage. Is it normal to be all over the map like that? The therapist told me that every single dementia patient is completely different from other dementia patients. Similar symptoms, but different progressions?
What is your experience?
We just don’t know what’s next and how to plan for it.
