Heaven forbid. I mumble because the verbal side is the strongest in my make-up. In order to work through a problem, I'll coach myself along, eg. "Well if this little piece fits there, no it's too big, I need a smaller piece". I am problem solving, coaching myself, I did that for as long as I can remember. If verbal communication breaks down, we just need to switch to writing things down. I'll sometime put a note on construction paper, and write with Sharpie, WE'll load the truck, 3:00 PM. That seems to work well in my Dad's case. I sometimes also use a tape recorder, to play back if we're discussing something important. Finally, we have to adhere to a schedule. This is helpful for dementia in general. It's a lot less worrysome if everything runs pretty much on a schedule. This lends comfort in allowing a confused person feel like they can at least predict what is coming next. I am very sorry this has developedso suddenly, at such an early age. However, if you can try to keep the victim fairly active mentally and physically, you will have a better time of it.
