Types of dementia

My wife has dementia. However her neurologist has not determined the cause. He is treating her for Parkinsons-dementia
With a low dose medication. We have not seen any change yet. She can't walk or stand without assistance. Her short term memory is failing and she is beginning i
to becoming incontinent. Would like some feedback.

  1. I'm sorry you are on this journey with your wife. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you to take on caring for your wife, processing her memory failure and handling incontinence issues! Sometimes having friends and family members around who love her as much as you do make the caregiving responsibilities more manageable 😀
    My best wishes always go out to you - please know you are not alone and we're here if you need support or information to resources at any point along the way.
