Hi, there! New to this recent life experience...
My 69 years old mom just had a stroke causing her to experience dementia.
The doctor's diagnosis was a stroke causing her to experience dementia. CT scan result shows chronic infarct, right basal ganglia with focal encephalomalacia.
Prior to this diagnosis, my wife and I observed these things. She was listless and very silent which is not her personality. She forgot some things, like her birthday, her age and there was a delay when speaking. She can’t identify some things, she thought of the spoon as a toothbrush. Took a medicine but swallow it directly without
opening the foil but glad I was able to notice and grab it immediately from her. She can’t grab the spoon and even asked what she will do with the spoon. She cries a lot.
This must be a long battle that I have to go through and finding more about
it will definitely help us along the way.
