    My mum has been diagnosed with vascular dementia for 12 years and is now in a care home. The last2 weeks she’s stopped eating and refusing meds. I think she takes a bit of water. Question is do you think we are now nearing the end? Up until a month ago she was her usual confused self.

    Vascular Dementia

    I have had this disease since 2016. I have kept fairly well on the whole. I do find daily chores hard and have memory loss which can be awkward. I get quite emotional at times.
