barker Hello My partner has some kind of dementia, as yet not diagnosed after some 3 years. Very often his behaviour and manner seem normal to the outside world, but he is a different person once we are back home. He follows me about, panics if I am out of site, he repeats himself over and over. Very often he knows the answers to the questions he asks. He panics and gets very, very anxious. His memory is poor and he gets confused. His personality has changed from confident and extremely able (he managed many men in his job) to a timid shadow of his former self with no confidence. He has to be promted at every stage during his morning ablutions. However, he seems to excel at the psychological tests and scans show only mild atrophy. Can anyone shed any light on these symptoms? His brother has Pick's Disease.
