Thank you for taking the time to respond to me. It seems kinna strange asking for help rather than giving it for a change! If her "friend" was to take her in Scotland she would get next to no visitors. He is the only one up there reallwho would visit and since he runs a busy farm, I doubt he would manage more than once every couple of weeks. If she was to come to us we would be able to visit 5-6 times a week. (Assuming thats what is in her best interest).
As for the timeline, I am glad that the average is 10 years. I understand that averages mean that people live longer and shorter than the average but I was thinking around the 3-5 years mark so I am relieved about that. I know everyone is different but (Generally) is there a longish period of time between where she is now (Memory loss) and her losing other mental functions such as speech?
I have heard of Aricept. It was licenced not long ago here in the UK. Her meds have not been sorted out yet, but I want to know if there is anything that I should be on the lookout for (I.e. anything that is not very good or Something that is really helpful). Also any other natural remedies that may help? Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance,
