Hi Billy boy my mum was diagnosed in dec 2014 when I asked the physchiartrist what stage he thought my mum was at he told me they don't stage anymore because everyone is different. I looked up stages and roughly put my mum as stage 4/5 if you look at the seven stages of Alzheimer's it might give you an idea where you are with your dad sorry I can't be more help take care Annie x
