Hi everyone. My dad has been diagnosed with mild dementia. He point blank refuses to go back to the memory clinic as he says there's nothing wrong with him. Over the last year or so he's having memory loss and concentration problems. He was out and about as usual, but is a creature of habit. Anyway, last week he ended up in hospital with problems from a leaking heart vessel, which required a two night stay. He was totally agitated and did not know where he was during those two days. He thought he was in a shop, then a restaurant, and kept trying to leave the ward and the staff had to take his clothes and shoes away. It was heartbreaking to see him like this. i took him home and he's back to his "normal" self, but can't remember anything about what happened in the hospital. He's also constantly tired and sleeping, but the doctor says his dementia will be causing this. My mum is with him all the time and says she tries to get him to slowly remember things, but to no avail. She also finds it so sad. It's so good that there is a site like this to come and hear other people's experiences at such a difficult time. Although I know I'm fortunate at the moment that it's mild dementia.
