I have just joined the forum, I think my Dad might be entering his late stage of dementia, he is incontinent quite regularly these days, usually during the night. He has episodes of jerkiness and is getting more sleepy. He also suffers from epilepsy and so occasionally has really bad fits which seem to take him down a level each time but he doesn't seem to have recovered that well from his last fit over a week ago now. All of his symptoms, word finding, reasoning, mobility and daily functions are deteriorating. Can anyone tell me if he's now in late stage dementia? He's still living with Mum in sheltered accommodation and neither of them want him to go into care, its heartbreaking.
