Hi Everyone, this is my first post here, my mother was diagnosed with Vascular dementia last year and the deterioration has been rapid. I care for her one day a week to give my father a break so that he can play golf. She becomes agitated when he is not around and by the end of the afternoon she is tearful, pacing and saying that he will never come back. She has problems articulating her feelings as she finds it difficult to find the words to speak. Are there any ways of coping with this or any medication for anxiety that we can ask the doctor for, my father told me that he was told by her doctor that he is unable to prescribe anything.
