    Vascular dementia

    Hi my mother in law has vascular dementia and we are not sure what stage she is at now. She doesn't eat a lot and is very frail. She can't walk hardly at all we use a wheelchair for her. She can't remember how to do anything at home either. Any advice given will be greatly appreciated.

    Is it the end?

    I've read the advice on the website and spoken to a local hospice but I find others stories informative. My Mum has late stage vascular dementia, she sleeps, a lot!

    Living away

    My mother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. I live at a distance and wondered how I can move forward with phone calls . What should the opening line be? ‘How are you’ seems to much of an open question. Thank you.
