I have somewhat deteriorated since my last memory assessment less than a year ago. My memory nurse asked me a host of questions and my score was noted. Much to my dismay and her surprise I had a score of 14 out of a possible 30.
I am more than anxious about my poor score. It has left me ruminating about the possible consequences that me and wife may endure if this downward spiral continues.
I have read that in general those with early onset of dementia seem to deteriorate quicker than those who experience it later in life. I am struggling to come to terms with the prospect of my wife having to support me earlier than we anticipated.
I am sorry my post is not of a positive nature but I feel that my anxieties are justified despite my efforts to maintain a positive attitude towards this horrible disease.
I would appreciate any help or advice members can offer.
I would appreciate a response from those who share a similar experience.
